Husk Baked Sweetcorn Recipe

No prepping, no faffing, it’s as simple as wash… bake… eat!

 

This is a brilliant, foolproof method of cooking corn in the oven if you haven’t had the chance to light the BBQ or the summer weather is a little on the wet side or you just fancy a simple tasty lunch. Of course, it is just as amazing on the BBQ, you just have to remember to rotate the corn 3 or 4 times throughout cooking.

We’ve suggested a few optional seasonings which go brilliantly with sweetcorn but it’s totally up to you!
