Corn on the Cob ... AKA American (Iowan!) Picnic Food!
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Seems to lower blood pressure (because it is a comfort food, or does it really?). Contains nice amounts of iron, zinc, potassium and is low in sodium and has some good protein. Enjoy it!
fresh corn on the cob
Buy fresh corn. If the husk is still on, simply peel it back without removing it, and then peel off the silk. Wash with cold rujnning water. Put the husk back to cover the kernels. Microwave on high, using 3 minutes per each ear. (Or remove all husks and wrap in waxed paper.) Serve with extra virgin olive oil or butter, salt, and pepper. It is so good that you may want to try it without anything on it.
