Think Global—Eat Local Amaize Corn grown in Waterloo, Nebraska
It doesn’t get any closer to Omaha than Waterloo at the NW edge of Omaha. There they grow Amaize Sweet Corn. 100 years of cultivation--absolutely no GMO.
Mike tells me that Amaize sweet corn is the best corn he’s ever tasted.
Amaize cooking instructions and recipes
Boil: Remove the husks and silk. Place the cobs in a kettle of boiling water. Do not use too small a pot or add too much corn. Cover and return it to a boil. Boil for 3-4 minutes. Do not over cook
Grill: Peel back the cornhusks, but do not remove them from the base of the cob. Remove silk. Fold husks back into place and soak corn in water bath for 10 to 15 minutes. Heat grill to high and place corn, in husks, on grill. Grill for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Husks will blacken. When corn is done, remove from grill and carefully peel back and remove husks. For more of a grilled flavor, peel back husks and return corn to grill for a few minutes on each side.
Herb Butter: Mix half of a cup of butter with 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite fresh herbs.
Chili Lime: Mix lime juice and 1 teaspoon chili powder for a fat free kick.
Hooray for Horseradish: Mix ½ cup of butter, 1 tbsp of mustard and 1 teaspoon of prepared horseradish.
Make Mine Buffalo: Mix half-cup light mayo with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (apprx. 2 tablespoon) to taste.
