Make Roasted Corn (Camping Recipe)
Required Cooking Utensils
aluminum foil (if cooking over open fire)
Ears of corn still in the husk (1 or 2 per person)
Butter or margarine
Soak ears of corn in water for at least 2 hours. When campfire is hot with coals (or briquettes) lay corn (with shucks on) on grill. When cooking over an open fire I wrap each in a layer of tin foil to prevent husk from flaming and lay around base of fire. Turn occasionally (when cooking over coals the husks will turn black) depending on hotness of fire, they should be done in 20 to 30 minutes. Pull back shucks, add oleo and salt and pepper and enjoy! Serves 8 hungry folks or 6 real hungry folks!! Be sure and have plenty of napkins because they are messy! The number of ears depends on the number you are feeding! You will want at least 1 ear per person and maybe 2. These are excellent to have almost done when you put your steaks on the grill. YUMMY!
Note: I would have considered this to be to plain to post on this site except for the number of new campers who seem to have never tried corn cooked over a fire and the fact that this is one food we have never had leftovers of.
