Is there anything better than fresh sweet corn on the cob? Well, maybe but it doesn't get much better than this when it's fresh in off the field and you cook it up and eat it right away.

Just devoured 2 ears and have 3 left to go. Yellow and white kernels, tender,  sweet as sugar, and totally delicious! Just a little butter and fresh ground black pepper.

I love this time of year when the sweet corn comes in and tend to pig out on it. In fact I sometimes make it my main meal!

My late Pap was the all-time champion eater of sweet corn on the cob. He'd come back from the golf course on Sat/Sun after stopping at the roadside stands in Cheesehead land where it was picked fresh every day. He'd come home with 2 dozen (actually a bakers dozen of 13 ea) for our family of 3.

He'd eat a dozen all by himself, one after another! Never saw a man who could eat sweet corn on the cob like him! pig

Sure love me sweet corn on the cob. And you?



Cheers,

RR

I can and always could eat a dozen ears or so at a time. My parents used to warn me about doing it, suggesting dire digestive tract consequences, but it never happened. Come to think of it, I can gorge myself on just about anything that has real melted butter drizzled over it. How'd you cook it? Ever try the microwave method in the husk?

I used the microwave but stripped it first and then wrapped it in saran wrap. I'll try your method next.

...and if there's a worm or two inside, you get extra protein!

Tried that method today and it worked pretty good. Not as fast as the vid, but just need to get the technique down better. The ears are damn hot coming out of the microwave too!


Cheers,

RR
