Cooking "corn-on-the-cob"....cleanest most efficient way....:D

Cooking "corn-on-the-cob"....cleanest most efficient way....

Just received this in an e-mail and just had to share it......you may already know the secret, but some of us missed it..I also looked it up on YouTube.com and have included the same video as noted here....

Subject:Cooking corn

We have all bought corn from a farmer or in
the grocery with the husk and silk attached and realize
we need to remove
as much as we can before cooking, right? Well this gentleman in this video will show us an easier and less time consuming method and all we need to remember is 8 being eight minutes!! This is really cool and I hope you too enjoy this video.


If this is the method you always use, why didn't you tell the rest of us?

The best tasting corn on the cob is done by roasting in the husk over hot coals or open fire. Just use a clean 5 gal bucket of water to soak the ears on stem end down. After the ears have soaked for 10 min or so place them over the fire or directly on the coals. Roll the ears over to keep from catching fire every few min. When the husk drys out & starts to catch fire they are done, using thick gloves or old oven mitt, peal back the husk & silk then use the husk as a handle to hold the hot corn while you put on your butter, and seasonings.
Eat & Enjoy!

In his early films, he originally used a meat cleaver to cut the bottoms. After his middle finger incident, the ginsu seemed like a better choice.

Seriously, neat trick.
