You can also do this on your BBQ.

Heat the first and 4th flame over medium heat.

Wrap corn cobs in foil and place them between the two flames. Close the lid and cook for about 6 mins. Unwap and continue with the recipe below.


How To Tie Corn Leaves and Cook Them Without Buring Them

To dress your corn cobs up a little have a go at tying leaves at the butt of the corn.

Soak the corn in cold water for about 20 minuets.

Carefully peel back the leaves from the top of the corn, folding them back on themselves as you go.

Remove most of the silks and discard.

Once you get the leaves 5cm from the butt of the corn create a kind of bubble at the base.

Give them a gentle twist togther and tie with coooking twine.

When you grill them, make sure you use the section of the BBQ closest to the outside and let the leaves hang over the edge.
