This post is really not rocket science--but it is something you will want to try. How do you cook fresh corn on the cob? Probably the same way your Mother did. My mom filled a huge pan with water, brought it to a boil (which seems to take forever) dropped the husked corn in and boiled it for 5 minutes. The corn was done--you had a huge pot of boiling water heating up your August kitchen. But the corn was good so that's the way you cook corn.
Enter my daughter Jill. While visiting we wanted corn, it's perfect right now. Jill suggested we roast the corn in the oven. I was leery at first, I mean who puts corn complete with husks on in the oven?? We did and it was delicious. I will never boil another ear of corn. Thanks Jill for breaking the cycle!
Oven Roasted Corn--Tyler Florence
Preheat oven to 350. Pace corn (husks on) directly on oven rack. Roast for 30 minutes. Pull husks down, silk is easily removed. Use husks for a handle while eating. Enjoy one of the best foods of summer!
