"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Directions:
Grow some organic super sweet corn in your garden. These typically will be a bit smaller and with a shorter growing season. Put a few drops of mineral oil in the tips of the ears if the worm thingys are a known threat as the corn grows. Vining vegetables such as cucumbers can be grown all around and be helped to vine on the corn plants. When corn ears are ready for harvest, send husband or friend to the garden to pick some corn ears. Meanwhile, get a pot of water boiling on the stove. Have husband or friend go harvest some of the ears of corn, then ask him to run from garden to kitchen VERY FAST while shucking the leaves, etc., off the corn cob as he runs. Immediately put shucked corn cobs into boiling water, and cook at low boil until ready. Remove corn cobs from pot with tongs or other safe method. Smear butter over hot corn cobs. Salt to taste at the table. Eat just as is, or serve with other food. Smack your lips and enjoy! Remember to thank your runner, especially if he helped with the garden.
