For just a few weeks every summer, the Schwebach Farm trailer shows up at farmers’ markets with a huge load of sweet corn! I eat as much fresh corn as I can while it lasts, then look forward to next year. Roasting the corn caramelizes its sugars for a wonderful toasty flavor. Super-sweet and mild Red Tropea onions from Nolina’s Heavenly Organics are really worth seeking out – they also sell them at La Montanita Co-Op. With deeply flavorful poblano chiles or sweet peppers, and perfectly ripe tomatoes, this salsa celebrates the peak of the harvest season. It can be served warm or cold, with chips, as a taco filling, or as an accompaniment to grilled meats.
