Summer is in full swing here. That also means visiting country fairs and sampling some good, old fair food. You get to see many old classics like freshly squeezed lemonades, kettle corn, snow cones, ribbon fries and of course roasted corn. I wanted to try the roasted corn. The old lady, handed over a corn, still in its husks. She then carefully pulled down the husks. I wasn't sure if it was even roasted. But people were devouring it. Then I realized that the corn was baked in the oven. So it didn't have those trademark black spots that roasting on the charcoals give. The popular choice was dunking the corn in the butter which I am not very fond of. So I sprinkled my corn with salt and cayenne pepper.
Now, this is the season to enjoy corn. When I picked the corn from the Farmers Market, I accidentally pulled all the husks. So I wrapped my corn on cobs with aluminum foil. I followed Tyler Florence's recipe for Oven Baked Corn. It was very easy.
