Cold brew Turkish coffee?

Has anyone tried to cold brew Turkish coffee? My husband and I are interested in trying to cold brew coffee, and were wondering if we could cold brew Turkish coffee and skip the straining required otherwise.

Fresh corn and polenta replacements

Hmm, those might work... I want something to go with the fattier cuts of pork.
I have not yet gotten to try them (bought the cookbook after finding out about the allergy), but I'm looking at cooking my way through Fast, Fresh, and Green by Susie Middleton, and she uses corn in a couple of "quick braised" vegetable ragouts; a corn saute with chile and lime (probably not a substitute-friendly recipe!); a stir-fry of zucchini, corn, and peanuts; and a gratin of butternut squash, corn, and leeks. All of these use freshly cut off the cob kernels.

Fresh corn and polenta replacements

Much to my dismay, I recently discovered that my toddler has a corn allergy. I've seen good suggestions on replacing corn products in baked goods and as a thickener, but I'd love suggestions on what to use to replace fresh corn in sautes and stir-fries where its caramelization provides flavor for sauces, and what to use when I'd normally choose to put meat or vegetables on a bed of polenta. Any good ideas?
