'tis the season for corn on the cob,,,
I ain't saying the wife is impatient,, but, she has the picnic table set,, waiting for the corn to grow,,




Just kidding,, we read about the method of heating corn in the oven,, rather than hot water.

The oven method is perfect!!
Pull the ears off the stalk, leave the husks on.
Preheat the oven to 355 degrees,, throw in a dozen ears for 17 minutes.

THEN,, I cut off the top and bottom with a serrated bread knife.



The heat makes the silks fall right off as you remove the husks.
no muscles needed,, since the bottom is cut, the husks literally fall off.

There is no need to remove the husks until you eat it,, the corn is perfectly fresh.



(NOTE: if you are civilized,, and eat indoors,,
yea, you can remove the husks while the corn is in the kitchen)


So, the advantages to us are:
No boiling water, the house stays cooler,,,
FAR less labor,,
this is the freshest corn prep method we have EVER tried,,,

Give Oven Corn a try!!

We use a process very similar except we put the ears in the microwave instead of the oven.

I plan on smoking some as soon as we get some more. Have never done that. It would be similar to your oven cooking.

I do it that way on the grill, expect I soak it in water first-it "steams" itself that way and is very good. Sometimes I'll add a beer to the water for a little extra flavor.

I do the same method on the grill except I will now have to try the beer method. I usually add it to my mouth for flavor but maybe the corn needs bit as well....

Might have to try the oven method when our corn is ready. We usually have way more than we can eat fresh and freeze them on the ears. When needed, no boiling water needed, just toss on the grill. As the cob thaws it steams itself.
