When there is a holiday in the middle of the week I get so messed up! I lose time, days runs together and all of a sudden the weekend is here! I drove down the road through Lynchburg today (made famous by the “hometown ingredient” also known as Jack Daniels) and by the look of the cars, motor homes, and motor cycles, summer vacation is into full swing! The JD parking lot was full to over-flowing and it was 101 degrees in the shade! Back at home we were finishing the week of with some awesome smoked pulled-pork given to us hot-off-the smoker by our neighbors, Kevin and Kathy. Kevin is an expert when it comes to running meat through his smoker. We are blessed to have such great neighbors! I wanted to have corn-on-the-cob with the pork but our corn isn’t quite ready. That means I had to buy a few ears at the grocery store. I kinda hate doing that because it generally is fairly old by the time they get, I buy it, and then we eat it. However, I recently received a video via email about an amazing way to cook corn-on-the-cob, shucking it at the same time and not leaving even one silk to clean off. Have you seen this video? I decided the best way to show you was for you to see the video:
Okay, seems too easy right? Cook the corn in the microwave for 4 minutes. I did 3 ears, 12 minutes. I was finishing up the rest of dinner so the time went fast.
Slice off the end … with my new very sharp knife, thanks to Cory and Ann 🙂
Shake off the husk, holding the silk and husk tight. Voila’! Perfectly shucked corn — not one silk to pick off. Here, I’ll show you again …
Cook in microwave 4 minutes per ear, cut off the end. Shake it loose.
I also read a review that you can roast it on the barbecue grill (in the husk) and then cut it, shake it, and it comes out clean. When our fresh corn is ready from the garden I will give it a try and let you know. In the meantime, this really works! How does it taste, you ask? The taste was very good considering I do think the corn was a little old. But the corn was cooked just right.
That’s all the excitement around here for this week! Many blessings for a safe and happy weekend. If you are reading through the Bible with me, we are in the middle of Psalms. I hope the reading is blessing you as much as it is blessing me! ~Catherine
