Corn-on-the-Cob (With Husks)

The Sport solar oven is an ideal companion cooker on the patio to prepare delicious vegetables to accompany meat coming from the grill. Because of its unique design, the Sport solar oven cooks vegetables without the addition of extra water. This reduces leaching of flavors and nutrients resulting in tastier, more nutritious vegetables.

  • 3 – 4 ears of just-picked sweet corn, in the husks (in each Sport cooking pot)

1. Peel off and discard ½ of the husks until you reach the clean, pale-green ones.

2. Without separating from the ear, pull back the pale-green husks and carefully remove the silks.

3. Replace the husks over the ear.

4. From one of the discarded husks, tear off lengthwise a strip about 1/3 the width of the original and use this strip to tie the husk ends together.

5. Put 3 – 4 ears in each of the Sport cooking pots.

Sport cooked corn is so sweet and “corny” that it may be best and healthier without additional butter, olive oil or salt and pepper.

Basil Butter

  • ½ stick unsalted butter
  • 1 large sprig of basil
  • salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste

Any basil essences released will infuse the butter. Use a black jar or place a clear jar in the Sport solar oven inside a cooking pot for 15 minutes or until the butter has melted and the basil essences are absorbed.
