Yummy Lummy quick tip on cooking sweet corn

Cooking sweet corn is easy if you’re a lazy cook. I’ve found an easy method so long as you have between 45 minutes and an hour to allow for cooking.

I know some people like to use the microwave oven but in my mind, the corn lacks something when cooked that way. With the method, I describe you can also add some aromatic spices or herbs like rosemary and garlic in the wrapped aluminium foil. 

Tonight’s dinner

For tonight’s dinner, I had some chicken wings which I laid out on a couple of pieces of Helga’s pumpkin seed bread in a large frying pan. I added some super hot chilli flakes to the chicken as well as some salt and cracked black pepper. I also added a little olive oil to the chicken to help keep the skin from burning. 

Along with the aluminium foil wrapped ear of sweet corn, I put the chicken and bread in an oven at 200 Β°C for 20 minutes and then turned it down to 150 Β°C for 25 minutes. 

The meal turned out nicely. The fried bread was a luxurious touch.

  1. “The fried bread was a luxurious touch.” Indeed it is. It is always the extra effort when you pop bread in the frying pan and brown in that way. And it is crisper that way too πŸ˜€ Like you, I like cooking my corn in the oven. Microwaving it – pffft. Love how you emphasised the world aluminum in the video – it is such an important part of cooking corn.

    Eating well this summer from the looks of it, Gaz πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Mabel. I did it again tonight. There is something very moreish about fried bread.
      The problem I have with the microwave oven is over cooking the corn. I don’t even like microwave popcorn that much. I like to pop it myself in a saucepan and make a sauce with butter, coffee crystals and honey.
      Hopefully the video won’t offend any American friends. Surely by now the should know the story and acknowledge the error in their version of English.

  2. Oh, this looks so good – I got a tool for stripping the corn off of the cob for Christmas. I can’t wait to try it out, but we are definitely in the wrong season for corn on the cob around here!

    1. Thank you Sarah πŸ˜ƒ
      I really like corn. Especially when it’s fresh and sweet. That said, I think I could eat popcorn most days too.

  3. ThatΒ΄s a great tip… IΒ΄ll try it… πŸ™‚
