sweet corn



You know its summer when everywhere you turn people are talking about corn, $3 for 14 ears is amazing when I paid $2 for 5 not so great ears, but no matter we enjoyed it none-the less. When it is this fresh at this time of year it really doesnt need anything so I dont even bother husking them.



I put them on a hot griddle inside, or a hot grill outside and let the husk toast while it steams the sweet juicy corn on the inside.



Different cultures put different things, some people like mayonaise and parmesean cheese, some like butter and chile, some like butter chile and parmesean, some just like salt, however you eat it just be sure to make extra for me.

I'm on that bandwagon DoggyB! It is a real treat and long awaited this summer! Summer ain't summer until the corn comes out in my book. I'll put some on for you for sure- heading out to buy some now!

salt and butter for me .... delicious!

But I agree that when it's this fresh right out of the garden, it's great plain.

I absolutel LOVE corn!!! Always eat it with butter, sea salt and cracked pepper, fabulous!!

Q: This brings up a question for me, not really related to corn, but seeing you are in summer I thought I would ask - Watermelon - what do you put on that. For me its salt, and everyone in Australia thinks that is really weird, so is it an american thing or just me????
