The Corn Picking Moon

The Corn Picking Moon (named by Native American tribes) is often the brightest full moon of the year.

Farmers call it the Harvest Moon because it's almost like a second daylight, allowing them to work well into the night, harvesting crops.

Harvest Corn Side Dish Recipe
(My Grandma used to make this.)
  • 18 oz. sweet corn
  • 1.5 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 6 oz. skim milk
  • 1.5 cups minced onion
  • 1.5 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Stir together: corn, egg, milk, onion, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup Swiss cheese. Place in a shallow baking dish. Create a topping with the melted butter and bread crumbs. Sprinkle on top of the casserole. Cover with the remaining Swiss cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
