Place 6 cobs of corn with ½ cup (125 ml) water in a large pot. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid for 8 - 10 minutes or until just cooked. The kernels should not shrivel up – then the corn is overcooked. Drain well. Enjoy like this or grill corn over medium coals until lightly grilled.
Mix ¼ cup (60 ml) olive or canola oil, 1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh parsley, 1 tbsp (15 ml) sesame seeds and ½ tsp (2,5 ml) paprika or cayenne pepper together. Drizzle over corn instead of butter. The oil mixture is also delicious over other veggies.
