Hello and Happy Foodie Friday!

Today’s recipe is inspired by all the attention corn has been getting on the internet. Ha!

One of my favorite foods made with corn is polenta, which is made from cornmeal! And polenta is considered an ancient grain. Pretty cool, right? Check out how we made these skewers using polenta, red bell pepper and pork. I also love how it also looks like candy corn…anybody else see the resemblance?

Special thanks to Chef Harpster for helping with this recipe.

  • 2-3 red bell peppers, large dice
  • 1/2 cup honey
