Making corn off the cob is so easy, and there’s no dental floss required!!!
Ina has gone and done it again. File this in the “why didn’t I think of this” category.
I have three kids, each with some sort of orthodontic apparatus, and my own teeth seem to catch food like it’s a sport. Corn on the cob has become more of a hassle than it’s worth, but we all love fresh corn.
Then someone posted a link on Facebook to this recipe from Ina Garten for fresh sautéed corn. I mean! Of course!!!
You just cut it off the cob when it’s still raw, heat some butter in a shallow sauté pan on the stove, throw in the corn, stir it around for 5-10 minutes or until it’s perfectly crisp-tender, salt and pepper, and serve! Voila!
It’s so easy you don’t even need a recipe. But if you’re like me, and you will forget all about this and need to print it out and keep it somewhere, here you go.
- corn on the cob (6-8 ears)
- 3-4 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- Husk the corn and cut the kernels off as close to the husk as possible.
- Melt the butter in a large saute pan or skillet. Add the corn and saute uncovered on medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the starchiness in the corn is gone.
- Salt and pepper to taste. Serve!
