Campfire Cooking ~ Corn on the cob

A light wind swept over the corn, and all nature laughed in the sunshine. ~ Anne Bronte

Corn is a type of grass and every row has an even number of kernels.  There is one strand of silk for each kernel on a cob.

Campfire cooking has never been my area of expertise, but our son-in-law cooked delicious, tender sweet corn for us while on a recent camping excursion.
