Someone just brought me some fresh corn on the cob.
What's the best way to cook it, boil, steam, grill,
micro, pan fry ??????

I checked out the food network and am going to try
one of their methods. (I think it's Paula D's recipe)

Rub it with mayo (think I'll do 2 w/ mayo, 2 w/ butter),
sprinkle w/ parm cheese, chili powder,
salt & pepper,

Wrap in foil & grill for 10 minutes, turning occassionally.

Any better/other suggestions ?

We just soak ours in water for a few hours and put them on the grill (husks and all) for about 20 min. So much more flavor than boiling or steaming. Pan fry? That's a new one I've never heard of!

I cut the very top tip off, run a little water down inside the husk (it wicks readily), and put it into the microwave. To butter them, I take 1/4 stick from the freezer, peel the paper halfway back, and rub the end of the stick on the cob.

I plunge the shucked corn into a huge pot of boiling salted water and turn off the heat...about 5 minutes and it's ready to eat. Also, if you add butter to the water the corn is coated with the melted stuff as you pull it out of the water and no more is needed.

Well I tried the recipe for corn on the cob that Highlander got from the Food Network. It was awesome! I also give it ***** You're right Highlander, I think it's the mix of the Parmesan and the mayo!

if you boil your corn - add a little sugar to the boiling water! brings out the sweetness and flavor!

L EE, normally I would soak it in water and grill it with the husks on. I generally don't boil or nuke it.

Modern corn is plenty sweet enough for me.

I just use the wrapper that it's grown in, after cutting the end of the husk off to pour some water in to make steam.

If you soak it in water (the whole ear, husk intact) a couple of hours you don't have to do that.

Wet is wet, and it can only hold so much water. It's easier for me to completely wet the ear in a few seconds than it is to go to the bother of soaking it.

Did someone say "easier" ??

How about 'oven roasted'.

Preheat oven - 350 degrees.
Put corn husks directly on the oven rack and roast for about 30 minutes.
Peel down the husks and use as a handle when eating.

P.S.I bought some good, fresh sweet corn at Sauders yesterday!

Your method is just as easy; mine's much faster, particularly if I'm eating alone, and eating just 1 or 2 ears, in which case it's also more energy-efficient.

Sauders' corn IS the BEST!!

I think so, just make sure you turn it every so often.
