Baked Corn on a Cob


today's post is a non-recipe, so simple, so flippin easy it doesn't really warrant a post. however, it's my blog and i can do whatever i want. but i will do something slightly different, i will include a story. i haven't done that in awhile.

when i was a kid i didn't fully understand the concept of the world being round. i mean, i heard the saying the world isn't flat and all that and i repeated it like i got it but the concept was foreign to me. what's that got to do with corn? keep up. one time i was knawing on a massive corn on a cob, i mean i was a little kid with a big kid's appetite. grandpa would steam up the corn and slather on the butter and let me go to town. so, i'm minding my own business at the table, going row by row methodically. and in my little kid head i was telling myself that i would get to the "other side" once i finished "this side." imagine my dismay and utter desolation to realize THERE WAS NO OTHER SIDE.

and that is how i learned, the hard way, that the world is not flat.

Baked Corn

corn (duh)
Blue Ridge Blend Saera's Seasoning Salt

preheat oven to 350F.
think of the corn like it's a potato. grab some foil, slather the corn with some butter and season with the salt. wrap with foil.
bake for about 20-30 minutes.

be careful when unwrapping. knaw. and remember THERE IS NO OTHER SIDE.
