Don't you just love sweet, summertime corn? But making it can be a bit of a mess.
Until recently, I always shucked it and then either boiled it on the stove (where the water seems to take forever to boil) or grilled it (often over- or under-cooking it).
Someone told me about a super easy way to cook and shuck corn. All you do is place your corn cobs directly on your top oven rack (husks and all ~ absolutely no prep work) and turn the oven on to 350 (don't preheat the oven) and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove your corn from the oven and cut about and inch off the bottom like this:
Then squeeze the corn out of the husk (kinda like a giant tube of toothpaste):
Walah! The corn comes out of the husk with virtually no silk! How easy is this?!
Now, in other corn cob news...Have you ever met Butter Boy?
He's a brilliant little guy ~ holds the butter so that you can expertly cover your corn. No butter dish mess!
Two solutions to some of life's hassles. Happy I could share these with you!
