I’m a Jersey girl and one thing I know for sure, when it’s hazy, hot and miserable outside, there’s fresh corn to be had. That’s right, it’s in heaping piles from farm stands to supermarkets along with giant trash cans so people can peel away the husks and inspect the kernels. It’s not unusual to saddle up to the corn heap, elbow out your neighbor, rip apart the corn and only buy the good ones. I on the other hand grab and go because this time of year there’s really no bad corn. When I can’t eat one more perfect ear, I make griddle miso corn cakes. They’re as easy as pancakes and the miso gives them a burst of flavor that’s a great addition to any meal.
