Today I made corn.

We bought 8 ears at Tony's yesterday, put six of them into saltwater in a pot in the fridge, and the last two.. I experimented on a bit. We've got this big jar of minced garlic from costco.. I drained the liquid out of it into a tupperware container, added some of the garlic itself, added some salt, put the corn in, and added enough water to top it off. Put the lid on and into the fridge overnight.
Tonight, we grilled them. 58° is a bit chilly for grilling, but I wanted my grilled corn, damnit. One was cooked in-husk, and the other was in partial-husk (you know how, in the store, they pull the husk off one side so you can see the corn? like that) and aluminum foil.

It turned out okay, tho, I think the garlic juice didn't really add anything, and kinda clashed a bit with the dried roasted garlic I sprinkled on the outside.

I'm doing a second round, this time with the regular stuff, fully shucked and wrapped in aluminum foil. We'll compare.

That brings back memories...

Being the rural girl I am, I remember walking out to pick the corn out of the garden for dinner while dinner was cooking. Pick corn, sit on porch shucking it with a sibling, boiled.

I don't think I've ever had better food.

Thanks for kicking up a good memory. :)

Way back when, we'd spend a few weeks each summer out on the farm, and that was one of the best parts: walking out, around the chickens, past the barn with the big tractor, past the potatoes, to the 40-odd acre corn field that could reasonably be called the back yard. Pick your corn. This one, no.. no.. This one. This one is mine. And this one.
