New Favorite Way to Cook Corn on the Cob
So here is a New Favorite Way to Cook Corn on the Cob and hopefully, by tonight, it will be your new favorite way to cook corn, too. Corn is a fantastic food and it can be prepared in so many interesting ways. Corn is grown in corn crops all over the world and it is a plant that grows on a tall stalk with what is known as a husk on top that is covered with green leaves and hairy filaments inside that must be removed before eating. Corn can be cooked right on the cob and grilled, boiled, broiled, baked, and cooked up in many other ways, it can also be eaten raw. The corn niblets can be removed from the cob and added to plenty of dishes, like salads, stir fries, soups and casseroles. Corn can also be added to spicy food, adding a breather of sweetness to the dish that is perfectly complementary to it. It is used a lot in Mexican style cooking and is a great compliment for a lot of the spicy food that is created. Corn also absorbs flavors and so it can be paired with flavors and cooked in them. That is what this recipe does. It uses some great ingredients in the boil to produce a cob that is super sweet and rich and ready to eat without needing anything else on it.
Corn on the cob is typically a summer time recipe because that is when the corn crops are at their peak across North America. Take advantage of this mid to late summer way to eat corn for a meal that is super delicious. People even have corn feasts, at least weekly, where they cook up corn any number of ways. Corn is the primary food at these feasts because it is so unbelievably delicious when it is picked fresh at this time of year and also that is the only time of year when fresh corn can be had. Although corn is great in cans or frozen, nothing beats eating it on the cob, licking your fingers and reaching for more. And if you are looking for easy dinner ideas, this recipe is yet another way you can enjoy the freshness of corn. You can even try corn cooked on the barbecue in the summer time, as it actually tastes wonderful with some char on it. In Mexico there are plenty of street food vendors that sell corn on the streets in their food vending carts. They will sell the corn on the ear boiled with hot sauce, mayonnaise and chilli pepper on it with some lime squeezed on too. It is a really yummy mix of flavours that is hard to resist once you have tried it. They also take the corn niblets off of the ear and put them in a cup with some lime juice and chilli powder to be eaten with a spoon which is also very yummy.
Corn trading is a summer grain trading investment that some people like to get into as well. There have been 270 million metric tons of corn that is produced in the United States alone each year that is used for animal feed and for human consumption to be distributed all over the world. So people who are corn trading with investments can usually expect to get a pretty decent return on their investment each year as long as the production stays the same or increases. Easy dinner ideas like this one make for great side dishes to add to any meal, any night of the week. You can add corn to chicken recipes, beef recipes and vegetarian or vegan recipes. Corn just tends to fit well with anything that you put it with. Thank you to Christin from Spicy Southern Kitchen for this great recipe we will all love to try out.*
