Roasted Sweet Corn Pop

Steamed sweet corn can be found everywhere in Malaysia. Carts flocking around shopping district’s harassing serving customers with cups of steamed sweet corn is definitely a familiar sight and the perfect midday snack while window shopping.

My sweet memories, growing up which also included a lot of window shopping.

For most part, summer is almost slipping by. It has been raining for the last few days and the dreary weather didn’t stood a chance against my craving for a frozen delight.

If you are looking for a Popsicle mold, I highly recommend my current obsession. It has amazing grooves and a lot easier to un-mold.

Grooves is the only way to justify my raging sweet tooth.

Lie.

Just the word DESSERT is enough to send me over the edge.

Roasting fresh corn kernels definitely amplifies the flavors here. Grilling would do the same, but the Husband is yet to clean the grill that has all sorts of gunk on it. Can you imagine taking a huge bite of sweet corn pop that has hints of onion?!?

Eeeew is the right word. Er, word?

Anyways..

I’ve lost for words just because I’m anxious to finish this post and watch Phelps take a final Olympic dive. And I’m sure NBC is gonna inflict insult to the injury with gazillion ads and delayed programming.

Darn capitalism.

The nights when my Dad would stop by a local farmers and load up with fresh corn and tomatoes and that’s all we had for dinner. Nothing else was needed. I still try to do the same once very year…and we could have corn popsicles for dessert. I can actually imagine that now!

So natural. The flavours would be so clear and delicious. This is quite foreign to me as in Australia, corn is pretty much just savoury.

Sweetcorn cooked in anyway is good. Children love it. But this is quite amazing. I think it will go down well with children in the summer. Nutritiousness food in disguise.
