New Ways to Eat Corn

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

That was what greeted me on my Sparkpage this morning, so I thought I'd share this Youtube video for the EASIEST way to prepare corn on the cob. Maybe this is old news to everyone but me...but I definitely buy and prepare more corn since I discovered it! I microwave each ear for two or 2.5 minutes because we like our corn "barely" cooked, and perhaps my microwave is a higher wattage than this guy's.

Sharing this from my fitness center's Facebook page:

AND, a current picture of little granddaughter; 7 months old but still only 13.5 pounds! I wonder if I need to start worrying!

Have a grand day, Sparkfriends! Off to the treadmill for me.

    I have never heard of this way. Had to show my husband, we will definately try. I have bought corn alreadt shucked because of the mess. This year have been given some corn in husk but I would en up wasting some because of mess.No more of that.

    Interesting video. We soak the cobs for 20 minutes and grill with husks on and I peel back the husk for the handle.
As for your lovely granddaughter... It is so hard not to worry... but they grow according to their own needs. You are being an attentive grandmother and that is difficult from a distance. Thankfully there are baby well checks so I am sure she is being monitored.

    I wouldn't worry about her weight. My 3 yr old grdson is 25lbs. He was such a chubby baby and when he started walking it melted away but his weight stays basically low. His 1 1/2 yr old brother weighs 27lb. LOL Dr says they are within parameters so not to worry.

    Awwww, what a cutie!

We always microwave our corn, but ever since the grocery stores started putting bins near the corn rack, we have peeled off the husks and cleaned off as much silk as we could. Eight minutes works great for us.
