I have been making this recipe for almost ten years. It is best during corn season when it is so sweet and fresh. This recipe originates from Cooking Matters (formerly known as Operation Frontline) by a Chef named Wayne Ludvigson in Seattle. It freezes well in glass jars and can be reheated for an easy nutritious lunch.
