Smile Corn on the cob

Picked a case from a local farmer. Just cut & chilled. Put one ear in the husk into the microwave for 4-1/2 minutes. Cut the large end off & pulled the husk and All the silk came of from the other end. Absolutely, perfectly clean. Loaded up with butter, salt & pepper. Delicious!
GO.

I've loved corn on the cob as far back as I can remember. Growing up in MA we wouldn't start to get any until late June / early July. We used to get it from the local farmers who would just lay it out on a stand by the side of the road. There was a box to put your money in. Total honor system.

Silver Queen was the best variety around our parts. Damn I miss that taste!! Store bought doesn't come anywhere near that.

We still have that around here with the farmers. Honor system with a cash box and prices with fresh corn, asparagus, tomatoes and peaches being the most common.

I have personally grown quite a few varieties of supersweet (sh2) corn, but Mirai 350bc, which is technically an augmented supersweet, has to be the sweetest that I've ever grown and eaten. If you ever have the chance to get some and like really sweet corn, do so.

But as with most things, it's a personal preference.....

We do 3 minutes in the microwave, per ear. 4 ears at once is 12 minutes. Cut the base off. Squeeze the cob out like slick as you please. No silk at all. Ez Pz.

Spread on a little mayo. Roll in Mexican crumbling cheese. Sprinkle with paprika. Damn good eating.

GO.

Works great that way, was actually taught that years ago by one of my clients that was “old time farmer “. Thought he was joking when he told me he cooked corn on cob in microwave. LOL

Was shocked at how well it worked

Does the air fryer taste as well as deep frying? Does it get it golden brown? I love deep fried corn but just to darn much trouble for a few ears?

Certain foods will have the deep fryer taste the corn, however didnt. It did have some color change like grilled and was juicy as can be.

Heres the one we have and it works great. I really like the preheat settings.

You guys are going to hate me. I boil mine with sugar in the water then cut it off the cob.

Nothing beats corn on the cob on the grill.

Never had deep fried corn until I went to a friend's birthday party at Shuler's BBQ in Latta, S.C.. That was to die for. I stop there every time I travel south. Their food is outstanding and reasonable. The wife and I get the senior discount too.
