How to Burn Corn

A couple of weeks ago Sopheak’s family invited everyone over to eat the first fruits of their corn crop.  Sometimes direct translation from Khmer doesn’t carry the same idea in English.  I was hoping this would be the case when she invited us to eat “burnt corn.”  It wasn’t.  The description is accurate in both languages, but the golden/blackened ears drizzled with a green onion sauce made good eatin’.  More importantly, it was a good time.







You know, they cooked A LOT of corn, all of which could have been sold.  But they love the Lord.  They love the brethren.  Their priority was to be a blessing. 


God bless,

That looks good!!! Corn eaten with the Saints is always good!

"And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved (Acts 2:46-47)."
