It’s getting to be summertime-ish and despite the utter lack of tanktop weather & balmy nights here in San Francisco, I can still reap the benefits of one distinctly summertime occurrence… corn on the cob! Deliciously sweet & fresh corn from farms that are barely an hour away from my house.  And since the supply of corn is so bountiful, it’s ludicrously cheap right now. Seriously, yesterday’s corn put me out a grand total of 50 cents.

I don’t have all that many original recipes in my personal arsenal – I’m mostly a tweaker, an editor at best. But I came up with this little recipe for a solid & easy summer side for those of us poor souls who don’t have a grill (or more importantly, an outdoor space in which to grill, tear…). I’ve made this corn probably somewhere in the vicinity of 3,871 times and it’s consistently yummers – even my dad (who’s idea of a culinary compliment is, “this shit ain’t half good!”) raves about it!

Check it!

Started out with two ears of corn, shucked and rubbed with butter, placed on individual squares of foil…

Sliced up a lime…

Squeezed lime juice over each ear o’ corn…

Then tossed the hollow shell to the wayside, like yesterday’s news.

And then, since I’m a Mid-Atlantic gal through & through, it was time to introduce my go-with-everything spice, the little black dress of my spice rack, if you will… Old Bay.

Sprinkled it, uber liberally…

Then folded up each foil square into individual packets!

And they were ready for the oven, 350 degrees for about half an hour or so…

Yum to the max!
