Cooking Summer Corn
If you have never tried cooking your fresh summer corn on the cob in your microwave, well, it might be time to try it. Your corn will taste delicious and keep it’s beautiful coloring, too.
It’s simple and easy to do. Pull back the shucks, remove as many of the silks as you can, by gently rubbing a damp cloth over the corn. Pull the shucks back up over the corn and completely cover in plastic wrap. Cook 6-8 minutes on high for 2 pieces of corn, turning every couple of minutes, so all sides are in the up position at least once. If you have not done this before you may have to try a couple before you get the texture and taste that suits you.
Roasting Summer Corn On A Grill:
Cookouts are a family favorite all year round but especially in the summer time. Corn is one of the easiest veggies to make, to go along with all your grilled meats.
Shuck and remove the silk from 6 ears of summer corn. Lightly wash each ear. You will need six 12 inch pieces of foil to wrap your corn cobs. Lay each of them on one sheet of foil and spread your favorite topping around the cob, making sure all kernels have been coated. Cover the corn cob with the foil by rolling and twisting the ends to make a package. Lay the packages over the indirect heat side of the grill and close the grill’s lid. Grill for about 15 minutes, turning every 3-4 minutes. Take care when opening the package and not burn yourself from the steam and hot liquid.
