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