Of corn?

Boiled post husk?
Grilled in husk?

Just butter? Salt?


Grilled up a couple ears tonight and put some of that white Mexican crumbly cheese and a squeeze of lime on top. Yum!

We boil it. I'm anxiously waiting for the Facebook meme to let me know the new technique to make silking easy.

I usually boil them post husk. Roll them on a stick of butter until there is way more butter than there needs to be, sprinkle some S&P, and enjoy.

I’m guessing that I’m in the minority here, but I like to eat corn on the cob in columns, not rows.

Microwave in the husk or microwave husked in plastic wrap. Butter and salt. Just enough butter to make cleaning it out of my mustache a royal pain.

Boiling is what I grew up on. I really try and limit usage stove and oven usage when its swamp ass conditions out and heat up the house.

If you don’t eat it like a typewriter types then you are doing it wrong.
Here is my reasoning:

I put a lot of butter on my corn, and I am continually rotating it so it doesn’t just drip off the corn. That’s why I eat it in columns. If you eat it in rows, the butter will run off into the already eaten space. Also, don’t take diet advice from me.

I heard WOI's Doug Brown once tell of how his in-laws (from Chicago) sent the newly weds a gift of toilet paper,, thinking that Iowans were stuck with cobs.
