instructions Mince the garlic, red onion and jalapeno peppers. Dice the red tomatoes and the parsley.
ingredients 1 bay leaf
instructions Scrape the cobs with a large spoon or with the back of a knife to remove the juices or the "milk" as my granny called it. (Save the cobs to steep in water with a bay leaf for corn broth for a later use.)
