Corn Off The Cob

My 6 year old got a new kids cookbook Williams Sonoma's "The Kids Cookbook" filled with recipes that clearly explain how to make recipes that any kid can make on their own - very cool.

This is the first recipe she made - we all loved it! Simple. Easy. Great way to get your kids introduced to cooking!

Corn Off The Cob
4 ears of corn
1/4 c butter
salt & pepper

1. Peel away the husk and silky threads from each ear of corn. Using both hands, snap the ears in half.
2. Place half an ear, snapped end down, on the cutting board. Hold the top so it stays upright. Starting at the top, run the knife down the length of the corn, cutting between the cob and the kernels. Rotate the cob about one-quarter turn and cut again. Repeat until the cob is completely stripped of kernels. Repeat with the other corn halves. (I helped her w this step)
3. Put the butter in a frying pan and set it over medium heat. When the butter is melted and foamy, stir in the corn kernels, 1/4 tsp salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook, stirring frequently with the wooden spoon, until the corn is bright yellow and crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if you like. Using the pot holder, remove the pan from the heat and serve the corn immediately.

*My daughter helps me cook often - but she was especially proud of herself for making a new recipe that was just her own - she is still beaming...
