Celebrate the flavor of summer corn in a new way with this fresh corn polenta. Grated raw corn kernels and their milky liquid are transformed by a few minutes over low heat. “Darn if this isn’t the loveliest stuff,” says rworange. “It really does have the look and texture of a light fluffy polenta with a wonderful fresh corn taste.”

rworange cooked hers without the called-for butter, and says, “While butter ups the flavor, starting with a nice fresh ear of corn makes it unneccesary.” The light flavor would pair well with delicate seafood such as lobster or scallops, but a bit of grated cheese renders it “swell … really, really swell,” she raves.
