We have all heard the stories of those who sat on the porch shucking corn with their Grandmother on warm summer evenings long ago. You may even be the storyteller.

I have a similar story and I have a short cut for Simple Corn on the Cob Roasted in Husk. 

My story is similar in the sense that there was a porch and I was shucking.

My childhood was spent in a small town surrounded by farms. Our seasons were defined by the fruits and vegetables in season; most of which we looked forward to. 


 
Every year I especially looked forward to the harvest of Corn. However, I did not look forward to sitting on the front porch in a metal lawn chair with a garbage bag between my legs and a pot of water on the ground next to me.

Peeling every husk and removing every slippery strand of silk was a tedious chore that I begged not to do, yet I was the shucker in my family and my begging only delayed the finish line and dinner time.
