Congratulations on the new blog -- I'll add it to my links.

One thing -- what is shoepeg corn? I've never heard of it, but that doesn't mean a whole lot.

SJ said...

Not a problem - good question - I think it is a midwest thing. Shoepeg corn is corn that is white and much smaller than what you would normally purchase. It is a smaller can and doesn't have much liquid on it - hence the reason that there is no "draining" with it. I have seen it at Safeway where the other canned vegetables are -
