BLOOMFIELD, NJ — The Jersey Freshcipes contest is the hottest thing in the kitchen this summer. TAPinto caught up with contest winner Melissa Raho of Behind the Plates who served up Grilled Jersey Corn with Garlic Chili Butter and Lime.
Corn is at its peak in the Garden State from around the Fourth of July through Labor Day, making it the perfect "must serve" for a Jersey Fresh barbecue. Raho says the recipe is "quick and easy and will spice up any backyard BBQ."
"As a Jersey girl who cooks with New Jersey produce all the time, this was an exciting recipe for me to share," she told us."I'm so happy Jersey Fresh chose it as one of their recipe contest finalists. My fingers are crossed that it can beat out all the other delicious Jersey produce recipes for the grand prize."
