What it's like to be a Frozen Food Taster (LINK)

post #1 of 8

It's just as horrifying as you expect it to be, but there are still surprises. Comparing tastes to cardboard. Mouth blisters from the salt in fried foods. I found it informative and only re-assured me as to my cooking from scratch.

Yechhhhh very few frozen foods are edible to me. Sure I will make them once in a great while for a quick fill meal but the ketchup/hot/sauce tends to cover up bad taste!

Frozen corn kernels - love 'em!  Like candy to me.

 

I'll pass on the dog food.

For some reason, I haven't seen any frozen corn around here for about a year. It is just gone from the shelves. Damn shame, that is - I definitely prefer it over canned corn when no fresh stuff is available. I know, I know, seasonality and all that, but every once in a while you get a hankerin' for the stuff in the middle of winter, so what :)

If I may plug Green Giant's new Honey Roasted Sweet Corn....

In one of those steam bags cooks fast at 4 min (my micro).

Only drawback is maybe too much other "stuff" in the mix.

Other than that..straight to plate when machine pings (like any other steamed food can get soggy) lots of nice plump corn kernals with a nice (ahem errrr sauce :rolleyes:) not too sweet but I drain it anyway and plop some soft butter on top.

My BP was up so have to mind my salt intake and increase fiber so.....

Made okra and tomatos with a bag tossed in for the corn element.

Nice.

I blanch, cut from the cob, and freeze my own corn in a vac bag with a pat of frozen butter(keeps it from ending up in the food saver). Take a bag out, drop in simmering water and nice hot as close to corn on the cob as you can get.

I hope my corn ripens this year - I just have a few plants on my vegetable patch. Last year, the weather was so atrocious, it killed them all before they were ready for harvest. Hailstorms, early frost - bad, bad year for the garden.
