Corn Fritters

Corn fritters are a perfect addition to your Lammas celebration as they are easy to make and can be served as an appetizer or a side dish. The key to making the ideal corn fritters is using fresh, sweet corn in season.

To make these cakes, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and melted butter. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until a batter forms. Then, fold in fresh corn kernels and chopped scallions.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the skillet and cook until the cakes are golden brown on both sides. Serve them hot with a dollop of sour cream or a drizzle of honey for a touch of sweetness.

Now let’s move on to a heartier food on Lammas- Corn Chowder.

Now that we’ve examined a fun and tasty way to serve corn let’s turn our attention to the classic comfort food: corn chowder. With its creamy base and chunks of tender corn, this dish is perfect for a Lammas celebration, when we celebrate the bounty of the harvest season.

To start, melt butter in a pot over medium heat and add diced onions and potatoes. Once they have softened, add broth and corn kernels and let it simmer until everything is tender. Gradually stir in heavy cream and cook until it thickens. Season with salt, pepper, and any other spices you prefer.

Corn chowder is the perfect dish to warm up on a cooler Lammas evening. It pairs well with a slice of homemade bread or crackers. And don’t worry about making too much—any leftovers are perfect for reheating for a comforting lunch or dinner the next day.

While corn pudding may be the star of the show at your Lammas celebration, grilled corn on the cob is a classic favourite that can’t be missed. Something about biting into a perfectly grilled cob of corn screams summertime.

To make grilled corn on the cob, start by soaking the husks in water for at least 30 minutes. This will help prevent them from burning on the grill. Once the husks are soaked, peel them back to reveal the corn kernels. Remove any excess silk, brush the corn with melted butter, and season with salt and pepper.

Next, place the corn on a hot grill and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning it occasionally until it’s nicely charred and cooked through. Once the corn is done, serve it hot with additional butter and seasoning, if desired.

But don’t fill up on grilled corn on the cob—up next, we have a fun twist on a classic favourite—mini corn dogs.

But don’t fill up on grilled corn on the cob—up next, we have a fun twist on a classic favourite—mini corn dogs. These bite-sized delights combine the sweetness of corn with the savoury flavour of hot dogs, making them the perfect addition to any Lammas celebration.

To make mini corn dogs, you’ll need wooden skewers, hot dogs, cornmeal, flour, buttermilk, egg, baking powder, salt, and oil for frying. Cut the hot dogs into small pieces and thread them onto the skewers. Mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg.

Dip each hot dog skewer into the buttermilk and egg mixture, then coat it in the cornmeal mixture. Once the skewers are coated, heat the oil in a deep frying pan or fryer. Fry the mini corn dogs until they are golden brown and crispy. Drain them on a paper towel-lined plate and serve them hot with your favourite dipping sauce.

Mini corn dogs make a delicious and playful addition to any Lammas celebration. They’re sure to be a hit with kids and adults and easy to make in large batches to feed a crowd. So fire up the oil and get ready to savour these fun-sized treats’ sweet and savoury flavours.
