Food Matters

One of my favourite quotes from this movie.

“One quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. Three quarters of what you eat keeps your doctor alive.”

You can purchase this DVD as well as others like Fresh and Food Inc. locally at Eat! Eat It resides at 603 Wall St (1 block north of Portage) and offers a storefront of over 3000 sf. Eat It has been in this location for 4 years and is open Monday-Saturday. They offer a full range of organic food, natural health and healthy lifestyle products. The new location has ample parking and of course if you can’t come to us, we will come to you.

Autumn Creamed Corn from the Hobbit Gardener

Hullo Friends! It’s Dudo Chubb, the Hobbit Gardener. Enjoy this wonderful autumn recipe!

Corn season has finally arrived! This morning I picked up some yellow corn from the Michel Delving market that was so fresh we could eat it raw. Must have been picked this morning. Did you know you could eat corn raw? You can if it has been picked within a few hours, at least the sweet corn we get. I was inspired by a recipe of Adelard Took’s to make creamed corn, which is quite a treat when the corn is so fresh. I added some nutmeg, and a little more butter to the original recipe.

1/2 large onion, finely chopped

2 Tbsp butter

8 ears corn, husks and silk removed

1 teaspoon sugar

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup heavy cream

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

A wonderful addition to any meal. Enjoy this wonderful autumn recipe!
