Ezra - little bit of a haul from where you live but Riverside Farms, off Highway 10 in the Ramsey/Elk River area always has a tasty crop.

My wife did about a dozen quarts of pickles last night. Large slice dill style. I really like when she does the bread and butter style also. As far as corn goes I prefer "peaches and cream" bi-colored corn with lotsa butter. I remember a corn roast I went to a few years back, A big one where they built a fire and got out the tripod and caldron and loaded it with corn. They took a large mason jar and filled it 3/4 full of hot water from the caldron and then threw a stick of butter in. It melted and floated on top of the water and then you just dipped your corn in the jar and it was instantly buttered. Pretty slick! Now I cant wait for the squash to be in!!
Soak the corn in water for a few hours, then take it out, peel back the husks (leave them attached), remove the silk, paint Italian dressing on the corn, pull the husks back up and tie the ends closed with a piece of the outer leaves. Grill these and enjoy. Having soaked them keeps the leaves from all burning up during the grilling process, and helps keep the actual corn really moist (as does the dressing). A bit messy and a bit of a "rig-a-ma-role" but a truly wonderful and different way to enjoy corn on the cob.

Soak the corn - peel back the husks & leave them attached. Wrap a strip of bacon around the cob & close the husks back around. Grill & remember that everything is better with bacon.

i used to have a cocker spaniel named gabriel that loves corn on the cob, i would hold the ear of corn for him and he would go to town on that thing,funny as <font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font> to watch him do that

I have been getting just picked fresh corn and have always boiled corn on the stove, but I would like to try the Italian dressing method. I would guess grill on low/medium for maybe 8 - 10 mins ??
Yep, and it'll probably scorch, if not burn the outer leaves, but as they're wet, won't get to the inside parts. Don't use too much dressing, as oil does like to burn. Yum-m-m-m-m-m

Deep fried is how we like it. I use my turkey deep fryer and it only takes about 2 minutes. Drop in the corn like you are boiling it and as soon as it floats get it out, add salt and enjoy. No butter needed, but if you are like me, I load them babies up....gotta support the dairy farmers.

brad - right on about the the "rig-a-ma-role". Grilled 5 cobs on low 20 mins. with Italian dressing was GOOD. And I will grill corn again, but next time maybe brush on the dressing at the end and save a step. That was way too much work.
Farmer Franks says he will have corn up until the first frost, so happy corning.

Is corn really a food??
is it just something you
borrow for a while!!

canon that is funny! LOL
Good luck with that. Let me know how it turns out that way, as I was just following a recipe I was given, and I really do like it alot, but it IS alot of work! I'm into triaging as many "rig-a-ma-roles" as I can these days!

I was over having rp7x help me fix my truck Sunday night and he picked me some fresh corn out of his huge garden. It was the best corn I've had this year, just awesome!

I LOVE sweet corn and I have to say that Twin Garden Farm's Mirai is the best. They are out of Harvard IL, but sell it at many farmers markets in the Chicago/southern Wi area. I am going to pick 4up dozen tomorrow! - LD
Hey Larry, how are you going to take off the husk with one hand in a cast?

Just had corn on the grill last night with some venison steaks. The night before was stew with the same venison and all the veggies from our garden. The night before was venison fajiata's and all the veggies from out garden. Who needs a grocery store!!

I hear ya on cleaning the freezer out Ryan. Last night was BLT`s with tomatoes from the garden. Night before was vension meatloaf and last weekend was venision k-bobs. Im down to 3 or 4 paks of vension left in the freezer from last seasons two 8-pointers. My hunting luck always seems a little better when the freezer is empty!!

Boiled fresh picked corn. This time I just spread on the Italian dressing and butter together. Saved alot of xtra work and tasted just as good. Kinda gives it a little kick. Corn should be here for a few more weeks.

Korn still available for another week or 2. Going back for more tommorow

Is there a way to store corn on the cob? I don't imagine you can freeze it...
10-07-2009, 09:51 AM
You can buy frozen corn on the cob at the store. The wife brought some home once and I remember it was like eating water logged soggy corn. yuk. Maybe there is a secret method to making frozen corn.
Fresh is best!

You can cut the corn off of a cooked cob and freeze or can it. It is actually really good frozen if the corn was tasty on the cob. Can you imagine back in the day having to prep corn to be consumed the rest of the year. That is alot of work!
