Juicy, sweet corns on cobs

Corn on cobs

While walking around Footscray Market this morning, I came across rows and rows of fresh corns still in their husks and since I had not have corns for ages, it is only sensible to treat myself to fresh corns. And so, I returned home with 3 corns in my grocery bags.

A couple of hours later in the kitchen, I steamed the corns in the microwave for 4 minutes. Later, I slathered them with knobs of butter and a pinch of salt. One for J, one for me. The other one would have to wait in the fridge. I planned to save one for soup. =)

Plump kernels

Each kernel is so fat and bursting with juice, we have to be careful while eating so not to splatter each other with corn juice. Lol. But really, that is one hell of a good corn. So good with butter.

Sweet jebus

I need to put corns in my shopping list from now on.
