Roasted Corn on the Cob - so simple!
I do buy Corn on the Cob but not often, as I hate preparing it. I hate pulling off those silky threads after the outer green sheath has been removed, before dropping it into boiling water, I always boil my corn. I even have a corn boiling pot! For some reason it always makes me impatient, so I either buy pre-prepared in a pack or tinned or frozen. But this week the corn cobs were so cheap I just had to stop and fill my basket.
I had never roasted corn before, although I have always been meaning to pop them onto the BBQ in the summer, as the kids love them (but I have not even got around to doing that!)
So here is my first attempt at roasting and they turned out perfect and so simple. Wash the outer in case there is dirt, place in a preheated oven (straight on the rack/self) at 180C for 30 minutes and hey presto perfect corn. And the best part is when you peel back the green sheath the silky threads mostly peel away at the same time. How easy was that! And I was perfectly calm! Does anything make you impatient in the kitchen?
