This week’s Ina’s Garden theme, Indian Summer, really opens the floodgates to just about any recipe. It’s the time of year when most people are scrambling to squeeze in one more weekend of outside warm-weather grilling and enjoying the remainder of summer’s bounty while slowly switching over to cooler weather, back-to-school, and football tailgating. This time also brings the return of hot oven baking and warm soups!
For my Indian Summer submission, I chose Ina Garten’s Sagaponack corn pudding.
I feel compelled to mention that tomorrow’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is corn soup, so making an Ina dish with corn the day before seemed like the obvious and streamlined choice. Plus, I’ve never made or eaten corn pudding, so I was intrigued.
This dish was quite savory and tasty. It also came as a surprise to me that the lightly sauteed fresh kernels of corn maintained a nice crispness even through the baking process. However, I don’t think Ina’s corn pudding was nearly as pretty as Greg and Katherine’s corn pudding here.
If you’ve made an Ina dish for this week’s “Indian Summer” link up below! Or, if you couldn’t join us this time around, we hope to see you link up on September 15th when the theme will be “Cooking in Comfort“.
