It’s Zippy Tip Tuesday!
I’ve been hearing a lot about a (not so) new method of cooking sweet corn.
A friend of mine sent me this video a couple of years ago: Shucking Corn-Clean Ears Every Time. It shows a gentleman who demonstrates cooking the corn, in the husk, in the microwave.
I have to admit that I watched it, but went back to my old tried and true method of shucking and boiling. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought it might be worth a try. I’m not crazy about shucking, as messy and tedious as it is. I usually perform the unpleasant task out in the garage over the trash can, but it’s always sweltering out there. And speaking of getting hot, sometimes I forget to set the pot to boil before I start shucking, so then it feels like an hour before it’s boiling.
And then why boil? I mean, I don’t boil my other veggies, just to have the best taste/nutrients/color tossed out with the water. So why boil my corn? So when this corn season rolled around, I gave it a shot. And might I say that I will never shuck the traditional way again!
