Sweet Corn Fritters Recipe
January 29, 2013
After 5 weeks in Asia I started to seriously crave freshly grown produce from my garden at about week two. Upon my return I was picking fresh organic goodies for dinner immediately. On Friday last week I picked some fresh corn cobs and a zucchini from the garden, as well as the carrot that is in the image of the fritters after the recipe below.
I took my fresh goodies inside and cooked these fritters up for lunch. I planned on cooking a couple to test them and then the remainder for dinner but they didn’t quite make dinner time…. The corn needed a little longer to mature but the ones I picked were sweet and delicate in flavour, their tiny pale kernels were a lovely treat.
They tasted all the more golden due to the hard work and dedication from the friends who watered and tended my garden for the 5 weeks I was away. These wonderful women and their little helpers worked to a roster I made prior to my trip. They provided me with lovely updates while I was away that made me smile and dance around my hotel room while I my stomach churned from an unfamiliar Asian diet! I was so pleased to see pictures of food they had picked to take home for their dinner.
I had my fingers crossed that I might come home to some fresh produce. I heard that Australia had experienced some extreme heat during our absence so I was not expecting a great outcome.
I am so grateful and happy to have come home to a garden that is not only alive, but on on the verge of producing a lovely big crop of tomatoes, corn, zucchini, and pumpkin. If you visit here often you will know that I really, really, really love my vegetable garden. I gain immense satisfaction and pride from feeding my family and friends with fresh healthy, organically grown produce that we have raised and tended.
I am keenly aware that it takes quite a bit of time and attention, research, trial and error and more than a little luck, to keep everything healthy, watered and in a state of (almost) constant supply.
Thank you to Moira, Anthea and Sharon. I am eagerly anticipating new produce in the coming months so that I can deliver you a taste of the goodies that you helped to grow in my absence. Your effort and care is greatly appreciated.
Updated 6/10/2013 – I have updated this recipe to reduce the quantity of celery seed that I had in the original recipe. The version above with a pinch of the celery seed was passed by the kids.
