Grilled Corn with Dry Grill Rub

An innovative use for our housemade rub!

Ingredients:
4 ears sweet corn, shucked
Olive oil
2 tablespoons Farm & Larder dry grill rub

Method:
1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

2. In a shallow dish, add a very thin layer of olive oil. Roll each ear of corn in oil to lightly coat. Then rub each with about 2 teaspoons of the dry grilling rub, rotating as you do so to make sure rub is evenly distributed.

3. Place corn on grill and cook, rotating occasionally to apply heat to all sides, until sections of the corn are lightly blackened and the kernels are bright yellow. Remove and serve immediately.

Variations: This rub is also wonderful sprinkled over grilled peppers or summer squash.

Kale Chips

These crispy chips are wonderful for snacking!

Ingredients:
1 bunch Lacinato kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Wash the kale then gently pat it dry. Remove the tough stem from each leaf, then tear the leaves into large pieces.

2. In a large bowl drizzle the olive oil onto the kale, using your hands to massage the oil into the leaves. Sprinkle the cumin and paprika onto the kale (you may need to use your hands to evenly distribute the spices).

3. Lay out the leaves on a baking sheet covered in parchment or a silpat. Dust with sea salt, then bake for about 16 minutes, turning halfway through. Bake until just crisp, leaves should be just curled at the edges.

Grilled Padrón Peppers

These small, slightly-sweet (but sometimes spicy!) peppers get an extra dose of smoky flavor courtesy of a quick sear on the grill.

Ingredients:
½ pound Padrón peppers, washed and thoroughly dried
1 tablespoon olive oil
Coarse sea salt, such as fleur de sel or Maldon

Method:
1. Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to high (about 450° to 550°). Meanwhile, place the peppers in a medium bowl, add the olive oil, and toss to coat; set aside.

2. When the grill is ready, place the peppers on the grill in a single layer, making sure they’re not touching. Grill uncovered, turning occasionally, until the peppers start to char and blister, about 6 to 8 minutes total.

3. Remove to a serving plate, season immediately with the sea salt, and serve.

Blistered Padrón Peppers

These flavorful peppers make for a wonderful pre-dinner nibble!

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound Padrón peppers
Flaky sea salt

Method:
1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add the peppers; cook, tossing occasionally, until skins are blistered and flesh is softened, about 4 minutes.

2. Transfer to a bowl, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat.
