As summer winds down, it’s time to celebrate that most ubiquitous vegetable of the season: corn. This tasty grain/vegetable is rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, phenolic acids, and anthocyanins that benefit human health. While consumption of processed corn products like high-fructose corn syrup has been linked to increased risk of various cancers, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, consumption of whole corn and other grains and vegetables are believed to do quite the opposite.
This week’s recipe for Elmer’s Stewed Pork Ribs with Chunks of Corn is a spicy send off to summer. It was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She has been sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
