Corn and Bacon Sauté

Farm Fresh Connect We kicked off the expansion of Farm Fresh Connect, our local, online farmers market, to the communities of Pittsford and Chittenden last week. We're pumped to make local food more accessible in these two Vermont towns, both of which have limited shopping opportunities - particularly for locally grown and produced food. While the pickup of market orders happens at elementary schools in both towns, anyone in either community - whether they work or live nearby - is open to shopping on Farm Fresh Connect. Take a look at our brochure (Pittsford or Chittenden) for details.

As part of the promotion of Farm Fresh Connect, at Wednesday pick ups between 3 & 5pm, we're offering tastings of dishes made with items found on the market. Last week, it was this simple  corn and bacon sauté.

Sweet corn and smoky bacon are just meant to be paired together, which is why I love to start a pot of corn chowder with the fat left behind after cooking bacon. I add in a little zucchini and jalapeno,  if inclined, but almost always include basil. Thyme would work nicely as well.

The result is an excellent side dish for encapsulating the fleeting tastes of summer, though I've had a whole bowl as my entire dinner, too.

Hope to see you at one of our market pick-ups!
