corn on the cob

Post by Kim N » Thu Jul 07, 2011 12:58 pm

I bought the boys some fresh corn on the cob in the husk and I am not sure how to give it to them. Do I cook it, give it raw, leave it in the husk or take it out??? :oops:

I just give the whole thing a rinse - husk and all (in case of pesticides) then sling the lot in
