Grilled corn on the cob
Simple things are best!
- If the sweetcorn cob has a leaves and silk ( is the name for the pistillate flowers), remove them first.
- Soak for 4 minutes in cold water.
- Microwave for 2 minutes
- If using a hot pan to finish them, pat them dry, once the pan is very hot, add them to the pan, without any oil and toast them for 4 minutes turning regularly with tongs.
- If using a blowtorch, place the corn cob in a dry frying pan and toast the kernels while turning the cob with tongs. This only takes 20 seconds and is very easy to overdo it with a good blowtorch.
Serve with butter and a pinch of salt.
To strip the kernels from the cob, hold with a tea-towel if it's very hot and cut downwards with a knife.
