Author Notes: My mom and I came up with this as a way to use the large harvest of basil from her backyard garden and take advantage of the fresh, sweet Jersey corn we have in the summer.jaimec

Serves 6

  • 1 dash black pepper

I really like the sound of this! I make a tomato basil tart that is similar ,but, the corn sounds like it would be even better.
