Gardening A-Z

I can’t think of a vegetable that’s more fun for kids to eat than sweet corn. I have many happy memories of sitting around the table engrossed in a hearty cob or two.

Sometimes it can be easy to over complicate things in the kitchen. With sweet corn I’m a big believer in keeping it simple. BBQ or cook the cob in water, add a bit of butter and enjoy. Of course there are many ways you can incorporate corn from the cob in a meal but that’s the beauty of it – you can make it as complicated as you want.

Sweet corn is a fun and handy staple vegetable to have in the garden. It can be eaten straight from the cob – great for encouraging kids to eat more veges – made into fritters, added to salads, and much, much more. And, did I mention, now’s the time to plant it?
