There is a delicious new recipe in the most recent issue of Real Simple magazine that calls for fresh corn on the cob.

As soon as I saw the recipe, before corn on the cob hit the supermarket, I was salivating, and I bought corn from another state the minute I could to test it out. It is fantastic, if you like corn soup, and I can’t wait to make it even better when I make it with Jersey corn.

I also long for Jersey corn to make esquites (Mexican street corn), grilled corn and a dessert, sweet corn budino.

What fresh Jersey produce do you look forward to each summer, and what special recipes do you prepare when it arrives?

Do you have a seasonal dish you invented that makes the most of the Garden State’s bounty?

New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher has announced the 2017 Jersey Freshcipes contest, encouraging Jersey cooks to share recipes using Jersey Fresh produce as the star of the show.

According to Jersey Fresh, original recipes can be entered by going to http://jerseyfresh.nj.gov/recipecontest.html. There will be weekly winners as well as a grand prize of a $500 Visa gift card and Jersey Fresh kitchen accessories.

Here are the rules:

Recipe entries must include a name for the dish, a brief description, the ingredients, preparation directions and a photo of the finished recipe. There is no limit to how many times one person can enter.

The weekly winners will be highlighted on the Jersey Fresh Facebook page and on the Jersey Fresh website.

“The Jersey Freschipes contest is a great way for those who like cooking to share the many ways our wonderful produce can be enjoyed,” Fisher said. “We appreciate all who participate and your ongoing support of all who grow and harvest Jersey Fresh produce. We urge people to show us how much they love Jersey Fresh food with the personal touch of their own recipe.”

The final week to enter is Aug. 8. After that, three finalists will be selected, and the Jersey Fresh team will record videos recreating those three recipes.

Those videos will be shared on the Jersey Fresh Facebook page. The video that inspires the most Facebook likes as of Sept. 26 will win.
