Sweet Corn Sandwich with Creamy Cucumber Spread




It so happened that last week one of my mom's friends sent over about 15 corn cobs from her farm. I had farm fresh sweet corn at my disposal (too much of it) and the wheels in my mind started churning. And they kept churning until last evening when I felt like having a sandwich and lo! then it clicked, a sweet corn sandwich! How elegant!

I hope you give this sandwich a go.
Let me know how it turned out for you in the comments below.
