Naked corn on the cob…not!

Irisa Raina 9


The reason I reduce so many of my sauce’s, marinades, spreads etc., is when you cook down something that starts out liquidly, the flavors intensifies.
Sometimes I’ll make a big ol’ batch of the marinade and portion it out and freeze it.
If you are not going to use this for the corn do not add the butter.
If you don’t want to reduce this marinade, freeze it…and use it for another recipe but marinade the corn for a longer time. I’ve use this is Mexican soups, stews, taco’s etc…and as I always say let your imagination run wild.
I served this corn with grilled strip steak and mashed taters.

  3. After that time poke a hole in the corner of the bag and carefully put the marinade in a pot.
  4. Return the corn to the refrigerator till you are ready to cook them.
  5. Cook the marinade on a rather high heat, till it is reduced to less than 1 cup.
  6. If it starts to bubble up to the top of the pot, stir it with a whisk or heat safe spoon.
  7. Once the sauce has reduced let this mixture get cold and mix this with the butter and set aside, if you are using it later put this in the refrigerator.
  8. Make sure the mixture is "not" warm; you don’t want to melt the butter.
  9. At this point you can grille the corn for about 10 minutes, depending on how small or large your corn is.
  10. Slather “ I just love that word “ the spread on the corn and enjoy.
