Poaching Sweet Corn in Summer Tomato Sauce

Next time you’re making a summer tomato sauce, try this delicious tip: Shuck and rinse fresh corn and drop a few ears into a potful of perking plum tomato sauce. Cover the saucepan so it quickly returns to a gentle boil and cook the ears for about 8 minutes, until the kernels are tender. The corn will look beautiful covered in fresh tomato sauce and you won’t need to add butter to give the corn flavor. (Plus, the corn will lend a delicious slightly sweet flavor to the sauce!) You can cook as many as 6 ears in a large pot of fresh sauce or you can reheat a quart or more of finished sauce and poach a couple of ears in it at a time.
