Corn on the Cob

It’s been YEARS since I had corn on the cob!

I filled the pot with water and we boiled the corn for about 15/20 minutes.

At first I thought we were going to BBQ the corn on the grill but Michael didn’t want to fire up the grill for just the corn. Understandable. He picked up a rotisserie chicken from the store:

I made salads for us:

With our standard oil and balsamic vinegar.

When the corn was done, Michael peeled off the husks and cut the end off of the corn.

Peeling Husks

Michael wanted me to try the corn his way. He squeezed the lime onto a plate and directed me to rub the lime on the corn.

Step One: Lime

Next, he said to carefully sprinkle Chili Powder on the corn.

Step Two: Chili Powder

The verdict? I liked it! It was a cool flavor. I didn’t put enough chili powder on it, so next time I will. Have you ever tried this? Michael thinks he saw it on a travel/food show about Wrigley Field.


Now comes the real question: How do you eat your corn on the cob?

I eat mine corn on the cob in a straight line: one side done, flip to the other side.

Straight Line Eating

Michael eats his corn on the cob in a circle, working his way from one end of the corn to the other. What do you do? I have no idea there was a different way to eat it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I eat my corn around in circles and work my way from one end to the other. I’ve never tried it with lime juice and chili powder – looks awesome! I loooooove doing corn on the cob on the grill because the grill brings out its sweetness. yum!

  2. I enjoy corn on the cob, in the privacy of my own home! It gets in my teeth and won’t come out. I do enjoy cooking it and cutting off the kernels for salsa!

  3. I do neither, I just take bites kind of haphazardly. It drives my husband nuts! ๐Ÿ™‚
