  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 4 ear Yellow Corn Grain
  • 1 teaspoon Curry Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

Cooking Instructions

In a small bowl, mix all your spices together. Then, clean your fresh yellow corn of the husk and roll it in a ΒΌ teaspoon oil (you can use your hands to get it nice and slick but you can always use a pastry brush). Using your hand again, cover each cob with a teaspoon of the spice blend. Wrap each cob in foil and place them in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour. If you are grilling, let it cook about 15 minutes, making sure to rotate them. When the timer is up, you'll find a steaming package of corn. When cool enough to touch, take the corn out of the packet and slice in half. Eat immediately or refrigerate and serve cold. They even taste good the next day.
