Corn Ribs

New! You can now save recipes. It's free!

You may think you don't *need* a new way to eat corn, but let us make a case for these "ribs". After a quick trip to the oven, these spiced cobs get crispy on the outside and sweet and juicy on the inside. Plus, they're fun to eat! 

The trickiest part of this recipe is cutting the corn. Laying the cob flat on the cutting board can lead to smashed kernels, so we prefer to cut the cob standing vertically, with the wider end sitting flat on the cutting board. Use a sharp chef's knife, and be sure to keep your fingers above the blade.
