Fresh Sweet Corn Tips

Always shuck your sweetcorn at the very last minute.

Pull off the silks (the hairy stuff), then strip off the husks.

Boil a large pot of water, add salt…lots of salt.

Reduce water to a simmer and drop in the corn cobs for 15-20 minutes.

Strain the corn cobs and slather in butter and more salt.

(Lower calorie alternative: don’t slather with butter but drizzle cooked cobs with olive oil and sprinkle with cilantro or parsley).

Eat like there is no tomorrow!
