Corn On The Cob

Sat Aug 18, 2007 7:53 am

Damn!!! My local butcher and specialty grocer just got in some locally-grown corn, and it is the best stuff I've had in 15 years, if not ever. Tender, sweet, butter and sugar variety; absolutely melts in your mouth. The last time I had corn this good I was living in rural Connecticut and found some at a farm stand when driving back from a volleyball tournament. My buddy asked they guy how long he should boil it, and the farm stand guy said "Boil it??? Are you nuts?" We ate two ears apiece right then and there.

So, who's diggin' corn on the cob?

Love it, love it, love it!! Try this some time: Pull back the leaves, remove the silk and coat the corn with either a chili butter or a pesto butter. Put the leaves back and grill the corn until it's crisp/tender.....really good!

Ahhh, the delights of summer! In the Northeast, I think the most popular variety of corn is Silver Queen, which has a sweet taste. It's important to to plunge this in boiling water as soon as possible after harvesting to stop enzymatic reactions in the kernel. Other local summer delights include peaches, blueberries and beefsteak tomatoes from NJ, and, can you believe it, NY State cherries.

Roasted corn is also delicious but I haven't found the right variety to roast yet.

Corn on the cob is the only permitted method to consume corn (with one exception, as espoused in the Fatwaic Convention of 1171 where Imam Abdullah Bin Liner successfully argued for the acceptance of popcorn "be it popped verily within oil at the house of moving pictures, nor be it popped within its bag of finest woven paper in the wave that shall be called micro, it is blessed unto the All Seeing One; And let it be coated with translucent yellow goop, that shall not be butter, nor any natural product, but miscellaneous oozings that shall not be named"

Boiled corn on the cob is good, but so is roasted in foil on the barbecue, with lots of butter, salt and pepper. Mmmmmmmmm. We used to get excellent corn on the cob in South Africa, from mealie ladies on the street. MeeealllliiiIIIIIESSSSS !!!

I'm reading an excellent book at the moment called "1491" about pre-Columbian America, and apparently maize is entirely an engineered crop, bred specifically by native peoples, rather than a simple domestication of an existing wild crop. This, and their methods of farming, allowed Mesoamericans to enjoy an energy-richer diet than their European counterparts for thousands of years. Who even knew...

It wasn't just what they grew, but how they cooked it, that made the difference. The same corn was brought back from the New World, and people starved, because the nutrients weren't unlocked by the soaking in wood ash.

Ah...up here in Ontario we are just loving the fresh "corn on the cob".

I also freeze lots so that we can have it thru fall and winter. It's easy to freeze....clean and drop in a big pot of boiling water for a minute or so....cool and freeze. When you want to eat it...take it out of the freezer and drop it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes and bam you have great tasting corn on the cob!

Funny you mention rural Connecticut corn, just picked up a box worth of fresh picked ears of the family's old warehouse in South Windsor. It's maybe a week under in terms of maturity, but I think the slightly sweeter taste is better IMHO. You gotta love CT valley corn and tobacco products, beats the pants off pretty much everything else! It's a shame so much of the farm land was sold off in the 80's and 90's, tobacco is seeing a huge rebound as good cigar's are now wrapped in CT tobacco leaves, not to mention with corn's popularity, corn is coming back strong as well. Just a tad to late though....

Dude...I've got the grill recipe down pat. Wrap it in foil loosely, and put a little water in the foil, and let it sit on the very hot grill for 20 minutes or so. Take it out....butter and salt it....and eat it straight off the cob before it gets cold.

If you wear dentures maybe you cut it off the cobb at your plate by slicing down sheets of kernels. This from a friend with a plate.

Corn is great at a braai as JGPH1A alluded to, but I avoided it due to the struggle to butter it. Then one day I saw a good tip in a movie: coat a slice of bread with thick butter, sprinkle said buttered bread with whatever spices you want, hold the slice of bread in the cupped palm of your hand and roll the hot corn on the bread. Presto! Prefectly buttered corn.

I substitute the water and put beer in its place and then Sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning on it instead of salt

I've tried many different ways to butter corn, but one way seems to work best, at least for me. I nuke the butter in an oval chop plate until it just starts to bubble, then twirl the corn in it. The butter is hot, the corn is hot, and you can redip it easily if you want. Dinner plates just don't work right for corn.

Trust me on this one, JG - after you've had the stuff, you'd think all that would be worth it to defend it. Seriously - try to make the stuff sometime - the George Lopez list misses out on one key thing - cotija cheese (sort of a Mexican version of parmesan) - grill up some ears and put those condiments on there and you'll never eat corn any other way again.

Hmmm well I may be amenable to reserving judgement in this case - but where on earth am I going to get corn on the cob, never mind all the other ingredients, in France, in August ? There aren't exactly Mexican food shops on every street corner, and fruit 'n veg are strictly seasonal.

Hrm - you COULD do a mileage run to NYC, stop by the aforementioned Cafe Habana and have it along with some tasty Cuban cooking... Wink As for the cotija, I'm thinking you could probably substitute some parm for it as the taste profiles are similar - not the same but just close enough to not throw off the spirit of the dish.

I love it - any way, raw, or boiled.

Quick story - my cousin, grew up in Orlando. Back around 1980 as the story goes, she was a young teen and they were all at the Daytona 500. In a U-Haul rental truck in the infield - stayed in it like a camper for the whole week. Anyway, during the race, she ended up selling ears of corn, straight off the charcoal to everyone - $1.00 an ear. She made so much money, her dad started bringing extra bushels each year. Damn near paid for the trip he says. Kind of a stretch I think, but it's fun listening to the stories at family reunions....  biggrin

Evil ! Blasphemy ! Creamed corn is the boil-pus from Beelzebubs pimply butt cheeks ! ÊÊ Even mentioning it in public will net you a public flogging and 15 hours of community service.

I'm ambivalent on the issue of creamed corn. Wouldn't touch the stuff today, but as a child, it was one of the few bright spots on the school lunch menu.

We're getting many varieties of the good stuff right about now. Had some excellent bi-color corn this weekend.
