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.
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.
While I make fun of my husband often for his short cuts I now have a short cut for roasting corn on the cob that would make my child self squeal.
Simple Corn On The Cob; Roasted In Husk
No husk or silk removal necessary. No foil needed.
Just Fresh Corn on the Cob in the Husk
Soak Corn on the Cob (in husk) in a pan or sink of cold water for at least 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven or grill to 350 degrees.
Place Corn on the Cob directly onto the oven rack or grill.
Cook Corn for 30 minutes.
Use tongs or an oven mitt to remove Corn on the Cob from the oven or grill.
Allow the Corn to sit for a couple of minutes before removing the husks.
The silk will simply fall off. Add your preferred seasons and enjoy!
