Corn on the cob is still healthier than canned corn, but it's generally quite lacking, and most corn is owned by Monsanto. Ick.

THE essential summer barbeque vegetable. Can you honestly picture eating barbeque ribs with asparagus or brussels sprouts? Wonderful when grilled and topped with the traditional salt and melted butter. But make damn sure your supply of dental floss is full.

A secret to good sweet corn is to eat it shortly after being picked, otherwise the sugar turns to starch.

Corn on Cob
I love corn. It's like the perfect food and has countless uses... like being converted to Ethanol, Plastics, Tortillas... just to name a few.  But did you know that corn is also delicious when eaten?  Yeah, Sweet Corn on the Cob is amazing.      Well, one of the cool tricks I've learned in life is how to cook "Corn on the Cob" in 4 Minutes.  Yes, you heard me right... 4 Minutes!  You may be willing to pay $5, $10, or even $20 (if you're a corn junkie) …

I like eating corn on the cob but it can get messy at times. As a child, I loved eating it whenever I could, but then I got braces and things changed. For about 3 years, eating corn on the cob was quite the task! I had to hold it upright with a fork and "shave" off the corn with a knife. Then, I'd have to scoop up the cooked corn and eat it with a spoon. Talk about complicated!    Corn on the cob is delicious, but as I've gotten older, I have grown less fond of eating things …

About this food


Corn on the cob (known regionally as "pole corn", "cornstick", "sweet pole","butter-pop" and "long maize") is the culinary term for a cooked ear of freshly-picked maize from a cultivar of sweet corn. The ear is picked while the endosperm is in the "milk stage" so that the kernels are still tender. Other varieties (called field corn) are edible as "roasting ears", but are not tender or sweet. Ears of corn are roasted, steamed or boiled, with or without their green husks. The husk leaves are then removed before serving.

Corn on the cob is usually eaten while still warm. It is boiled or grilled. Then it is often seasoned with salt and buttered before serving. Skewers are available to hold the ear while eating, which are thrust into the ends of the cob and allow users to eat corn on the cob without burning the fingers or getting butter and juice on the hands.
