One of the biggest treasures in our winter share by Winter Sun Farms is the bags of sweet corn. Not much else can brighten up your winter meals like the sweet, sunny flavor of corn. We eat it up cooked in Ronnybrook garlic butter and throw it into our pasta and soups on the regular. However, one fine night we felt like getting fancy and thanks to the awesomeness of the Smitten Kitchen blog, we rocked out this fabulous spoonbread.
While we love nothing more than a blueberry pie, by Winter we are craving some sweet sunshine in our savory dishes and start getting creative with our stash of Winter share blueberries.

Not much beats a sweet corn soup in the dark days of Winter. Cleaning out the inbox I found a Member Diary which somehow never got posted. Whoops! Plus, gearing up for our first distribution of frozen delights from Winter Sun, I was cruising through pics of meals we rocked last year. We loooooooove corn soup!
Want to eat local this Winter? Still time to sign up for vegetables and fruits frozen at the height of their Summer sweetness that will brighten any Winter dinner !
One of our fave Winter meals is a delicious bowl of steaming curry served over rice or polenta or noodles. We love all the curries created around the world, rotating between an assortment of pre-made rouxs, sometimes going for a Thai, a Malaysian, or Indian base. Yolim loves a thick Japanese curry with his beef and when it is his turn to cook tends to bust out the Golden Curry. For an interesting discussion on Japanese curry roux mixes, check out this blog post on Serious Eats - Taste Test Confession — I can’t live without my fresh curry bases bought in chinatown from the little thai grocer located by Columbus Park, but after having just read “Cooked” by Michael Pollan I am determined to stop buying the processed bricks and rock the japanese roux from scratch.
