Indoor Summer Corn

July 10, 2012 § 2 Comments

So… how ’bout this rain. All I can say is thank God for keratin treatments because when you walk outside it either feels like someone slapped you with a wet towel or it is actually torrential downpouring. BUT I just got this amazing summer corn that I was dying to try so I decided to grill inside–and it was totally delectable and super-duper easy. Plus I have a new trick for you so lend me your ears (HA).

Step 1: Start with the largest, fattest ears you can find. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove corn husks and silk and wash corn.

Step 2: The trick – fill a large pot with water and at least 1 c. milk, add salt & pepper (and possibly some chili pepper?) and soak corn for 20 minutes.

Even though this pot is on the oven, it is NOT turned on. Otherwise this would be a “boiled corn” recipe I guess.

Step 3: Remove corn from milk bath and put into a foil cut-out. Add a little more salt and pepper with a pad of butter (or two) and wrap corn in individual foil towel.

Step 4: Cook for 30 minutes at 350°. Be careful when removing to allow steam to escape without scorching.

That’s it! You’re done. Enjoy with summer salad and grilled chicken for a healthy weeknight meal.

I know you’re eyeing that fried goat cheese. Come back for the recipe this week!
