Corn, Squash and Tomato Stir Fry

The first corn of the season – yum. A tip if you’re not familiar with no-spray corn. Most ears are likely to have a corn worm or two. Just cut off the affected part of the ear and you’re good to go. If I have more corn than I can use right away, I grill the extra ears in the husk. When they’re done, the husks and silks slip off easily and I store the grilled corn in a sealable plastic bag in the refrigerator. It will keep about a week that way and is still as sweet as it was the day it arrived.

In the meantime, if you need an idea for today’s fresh corn, try this recipe from Martha Rose Shulman of the New York Times. No Thai basil? Any basil will do, or just omit.
