Latest news from Big Barn and our producers.
One of the best seasonal foods is now available for around 50p a portion. Fresh sweetcorn, delicious.
Especially when fresh for the best and sweetest flavour. You should really have the water boiling on the stove before you pick it, peeling the leaves off as you walk back to the kitchen. If not, buy it as freshly picked as possible, still with the leaves on, and eat as soon as possible.
Simply boil or even BBQ in the leaves and eat with a little butter or salt and pepper.
And next year plant some and try it really fresh. And perhaps even grow a bit extra and Crop for your local shop. Until then find your best local supplier using the BigBarn map, and ask when it was picked.
NB. Please comment if you see higher prices. Today 5/9/11 our local Tesco had no stock, Sainsbury 50p a cob and the local farm shop 45p a cob.
