It's the time of year when some pretty darn good corn from Florida starts to show up at your favorite grocery store. While it's not as good as the stuff we'll get from Iowa and Minnesota later in the summer, it's great accompaniment for those brats you're cooking up on the grill.
While I've got a million ways to cook corn, this is one of my very favorite methods. It's really simple. You just need a big pot, some India Pale Ale and some Old Bay Seasoning. Ten minutes later you are ready to smear your corn with butter, toss on a little salt and dig in.
4 ears of fresh corn, husked
2, 12-ounce bottles of India Pale Ale
2 cups water
2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
- In a large pot, combine ale, water, Old Bay Seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil.
- Add corn to pot and boil for 10 minutes. Then serve, with butter and salt on the side.
Pairing: One must only drink ice cold, India Pale Ale when using this recipe.
