Roasting Sweet Corn: Lime+Chili Powder+Salt

The other night I made delicious pear and peach salsa (recipe soon to come!) and I added sweet corn that I had roasted. I love corn season. So yummy. It reminds me of eating fresh corn on the cob on my grandparent’s farm when I was a little girl. That is after I had to husk the corn (not my favorite job.)

Mix the juice from 1 lime + 1 tsp. chili powder + salt.

Rub on the corn and broil (or barbeque), turning until roasted (about 10-15 minutes).

I cut it off the cobs, used some for salsa and we ate the rest for dinner.

I revel in this time of year. All the freshness and deliciousness from the garden makes me so thankful and excited about cooking. Remember awhile back when I shared how we’d planted butter crunch lettuce in our herb trough? It’s growing – so beautifully!

If you haven’t heard about the 31-Day Series coming up, I cannot wait until October when I’ll be sharing for 31 days straight about stress-free entertaining.

My posts are almost written and I’ll be teaming up with THESE seven wonderful ladies, inspired by The Nester. I hope you will join us all in October!

I really believe that you will find inspiration in our 248 posts … just in time for the holidays!

  2. We love corn. Just had some on the grill the other night. Never tried it with your basting ingredients. Sounds yummy.

  3. I slice the corn off the cobs before cooking, add a bit of butter, salt and pepper and micro for just 2-3 minutes, so it is still very tender and sweet…yummmmm.

  4. Actually, I think my absolute favorite way is on the cob. After I had my braces off the thing I wanted most for dinner was BBQ ribs and corn on the cob because those were two things I loved and couldn’t really enjoy them to their fullest with braces on.

  5. I just love corn, so any way it’s cooked I’ll eat it!

  6. Sweet Olathe! Only way to go!

  7. Oh yum! That sounds so good. I need to stop by the farmers market this week.

  8. We soak the whole un husked corn for 30 mins then bbq. it makes it moist and tender. Getting the natural sugars going without risk of burning. Husk right before serving. Yummy.

  9. My favorite way is off the cobb with lots and lots of butter, salt and pepper!

  10. I know that corn is yummy. That’s the Indian way to eat it, or so my husband says.
