Festa Junina whoo hoo

It's Festa Junina season.  That is to say it is country food and tradition party time.

From my point of view it is a corn thing.Sweet corn pudding - canjica - oooh so good. Then boiled whole corn served in the husk with butter and salt. Or, creamy corn polenta-like "pudding" combined with savory special ingredients - just like your grandmother used to make.

Everything designed to keep you warm on a cold winter's day.

Goddess bless corn.

Love me some Festa Junina.

We go festa junina crazy here in Minas! While I really dont like corn very much I love canjica (go figure) and canjicao! I just wish it was a little cooler here to enjoy all the winter food!

Gee, this post made my mouth water with a rush of memories from life in Minas Gerais a few years ago. I'm making canjicao for my partner for Christmas and hope it turns out well.
