Sweet Corn Harvest and Super Easy Way to Cook It

Nothing quite says summer like the taste of sweet corn and bbq.  

I have enjoyed growing sweet corn for the past three summers and this year is no different.  

Seeing how quickly the corn stalks begin to grow and later....

the first appearance of corn silk makes me start to crave fresh-roasted corn.

It is fairly easy to grow corn and even easier to cook it. 

I learned a new way to cook my corn that has nothing to do with boiling water and shucking it ahead of time.  This method also gives your corn a delicious, roasted taste as well.

Here is how to do it:

Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Take whole ears of corn, with the husks still on and put them directly on your oven rack.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Thirty minutes is all it takes to fully cook your corn.

Remove the corn and carefully pull down the husks.  The corn silk will come off easily.

Use the peeled husks as a handle for eating your corn.

It doesn't get much easier than that, does it?

What temperature?

The temperature that you cook the corn at is 350. Thanks Bonnie for pointing out my error :-)

Mmmm.. that looks so tasty! I'll have to try that. I tried to grow corn last year, but it just didn't really like my clay I don't think. We are fortunate to have a little farm stand down the road that we get fresh corn from when it's that time of year - so good!

Had to let you know, we did this for Father's Day and everyone loved it! The corn was fresh from the Cactus Park Farmer's Market in Phoenix. So much easier than any other way!

Hi Bonnie,

I'm so glad you liked it!

Love your method of cooking corn! We usually microwave in the husk, which steams the ears in about 5 minutes for 2 ears (turn once halfway through). I'm going to try your method when the temps cool down here...or get my husband to do it on the grill.

Hello Lara,

You are very welcome! I'll never boil corn again :-)

Even better -- just microwave an unhusked ear for about 6 minutes and let it sit for 5 minutes afterwards. Husk and enjoy!
