How Do You Like Your Sweet Corn?
Here it is the middle of August and I still haven’t had my first ear of sweet corn. For the past few weeks we’ve passed pop-up stands but never took the time to stop.
I love sweet corn. And not the same way each time.
You may have a tried and true method but for me the standard boil in water is OK but not exciting.
On a camping trip several years ago we found a roadside stand and purchased a dozen ears with the plan to roast them over the open fire. You really can make your camping neighbors jealous by doing this so make sure you buy extra.
While I was peeling down the husks my wife was prepping some potatoes, onions, peppers and bacon for a side dish.
Bacon? That did it.
We had plenty so I decided to use a few slices and wrap each ear of sweet corn and instead of folding up the husks I tied them down at the bottom of the ear so the bacon would crisp up.
So that’s my favorite way to have sweet corn. What about you?
