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.
Soak the corn in a salt water brine for a half hour to hour.
The firewood has burned down to a white ash appearance so the corn can be put on the grate.
Cook 5 minutes and turn.
Cook another 5 minutes and turn again.
Cook another 5 minutes and turn.
Cook another 5 minutes. Total cooking time about 20 minutes with turning every 5 minutes.
Husks are removed and the corn is ready to eat.
