Corn Pancakes

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 to 4 ears corn
3/4 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Pure maple syrup, or salsa and sour cream

Directions:
Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.
Cut enough kernels from cobs to measure 2 cups. Using back of a knife, scrape pulp from cobs and transfer to a blender with milk and 1/2 cup corn. Purée until smooth, then strain through a sieve into another medium bowl, pressing on and then discarding solids. Whisk in eggs, oil, and butter. Add to flour mixture with remaining 1 1/2 cups corn and whisk until just combined.

Heat a griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat until hot, then lightly brush with oil. Working in batches, pour 1/3 cup batter per pancake onto griddle and cook until bubbles appear on surface and undersides are golden-brown, about 2 minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until undersides are golden-brown, about 1 minute more. (Reduce heat if pancakes brown too quickly.) Lightly oil griddle between batches if necessary. Serve with either warm maple syrup for breakfast or salsa and sour cream for lunch or dinner. Corn pancakes are also great as a wrap for fillings like cold chicken salad.

Well, YUM. I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like any of the above whether the pancakes hold fruits, veggies, nuts or just plain pancakes. Obviously big business. I do have one question. You state putting the dry ingredients through a “ginger”, what is that? Do you mean sifter or strainer? A new cooking tool?
Thank you for these wonderful recipes and for taking us into your childhood as we watched and listened to you Dad as he worked his magic. Greatly Apperciated.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
