Tips and Tricks

Instead of using canned corn, use freshly roasted corn cobs.
Take 2 corncobs and remove the husks. Preheat grill to 375°F (190°C). Rub the corn with a touch of olive oil then place on the hot grill and cook until lightly toasted on all sides, about 10-12 minutes. Once cooled, separate the kernels from the cob with a knife and place them on a plate. You can also cook the corncobs in a skillet over medium high heat for about 12-14 minutes, making sure to turn to evenly cook all sides.
