Stir-Fried Corn with Chili,Ginger,Garlic and Parsly

  Let's get down to business first,giveaway business that is!!!! We have a winner: girlichef !!! Yay for you lady and you've got some tomato jam coming your way. Email me at with your info         ( where I can send the jam) and it will be in the mail asap. Ok (as my dad would say) enough shilly- shallying around,let's talk corn!
    Today was one of those days that I was totally thrilled dinner was cooking away in the slow-cooker. We had a lot of plans on the "honey-do" list (as my sweet husband calls it). We had some gardening,some painting (think chalkboard paint on a wall in our kitchen :) !!! ),a little bit of yard work and some canning to do.
       I planned our main dish around this week's choice for I Heart Cooking Clubs ,Getting Fresh with Jamie. Oooh la la.     Well if you find fresh corn even remotely ooh la la then honey this was the dish for you.The recipe was Stir-Fried Corn with Chili,Ginger,Garlic and Parsley and it was wonderful.And I got some kitchen time with the man that makes me go ooh la la,what a guy!
I got some corn at the farmers market. 
My sweet husband shucked the corn,rinsed it off and got all the kernels off the cob for me too!
Oooh la la,a bottle of olive oil. 
Now truth be told I did go ooh la la when I saw this bottle for sale at an arts fair a few weeks back.It's handmade and I just wanted it. And my cool guy husband wanted it too,so he bought it for me us. The steam surrounding that good-lookin' olive oil bottle,well thats from my big ol' canner on the burner,just a boiling away.At this point I was finishing up some blueberry jam. I love blueberry jam almost as much as I love my cool guy husband.Thank goodness for him.
But back to corn,love me some corn.
So here's the basics of the recipe: corn (I have no idea how many cups that is,I bought a dozen ears and well we used it all.
(So there we have it for being exact.) 
Next we have garlic,fresh ginger,chili and parsley.Heat up some olive oil in a hot wok or frying pan,add the garlic,ginger and chili.Add the corn and cook for 5-6 minutes quickly,stirring as you go.Next soy sauce,then the parsley,toss and serve.
Enjoy! I did.
