Things To Do With Fresh Corn on the Cob in Husks

Posted by on Sunday, August 11th, 2013

Did you know whole ears of fresh corn on the cob can be frozen in oversized Zip-Lock bags without removing the husks?

Did you know you can microwave fresh corn on the cob in husks about 5 minutes or until kernels are tender, then the husks and silks are so easy to remove?

Did you know you can wrap individual unshucked ears of fresh corn in foil and place on a hot grill for 20-30 minutes, turning every five minutes?  Then the silks and husks peel off easily, ready to be buttered and seasoned with your favorite flavors (salt, pepper, red pepper, Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, ect.)?

Did you know you can dry the leftover corn cobs in the sun, break them in half, store them in kerosene in a large jar or container to use as fire starters?

Did you know you shuck, silk, and cut the corn off the cob, then add a cup of water for every 4 cups of corn, heat for 10 minutes on the stove top, then place cooled corn in quart bags to freeze for later.  Frozen corn can be seasoned when ready to use with butter, a little milk, salt, pepper, or seasoned salt, or even a small spoon of bacon drippings?
