I enjoy growing corn in my garden every summer…..
But even better – I love to eat it! If you don’t grow your own, you can find it this time of year just about everywhere – the grocery store, roadside stands fresh off the farm.
What I don’t like about fresh corn on the cob, is shucking the corn and boiling it in a large pot of water.
So, I was thrilled to find a new way to prepare it, which has 2 steps, is ridiculously easy and makes corn taste even better then when cooked the old-fashioned way.
Here is how you do it:
1. Place your corn into a preheated 350 degree oven. No need for a pan – just put them on the oven rack.
2. Cook for 30 minutes and then remove from the oven.
That’s it….it’s done!
The corn husk will keep the corn warm until your guests are ready to eat. The husk and corn silk peel easily away and the husk makes a great ‘handle’ for your corn. Top with butter and salt or your favorite topping. The corn has a great ‘roasted’ flavor. I guarantee you, you’ll never go back to boiling corn in a pot again
So this Fourth of July, enjoy great BBQ, homemade ice-cream and delicious sweet corn!
