Over the last few weeks, I've posted photos of the mielie / maize fields growing [furiously] in the lands next door to John and Debbie's property. We watched as the first cobs got tassles. And waited...
Last week, our neighbor stopped his pick-up truck at the fence near the back door. I called Grant to come out and greet him.
He had four fresh mielies in his hands.
I removed the leaves and fed them to the guinea pigs who LOVED them. I placed the maize on the cob in a pot of boiling salted water and cooked them for about 20 minutes.
You add a dollop of butter, sprinkling of salt and chew...
That was lunch!
