  3. Yummy corn! I liked very much the different seasoning, made the corn fun to eat. Thanks! Made for ZWT by team Hot Stuff!
  4. Awesome flavor!! I cut the fresh mint down to 1/4 tbsp just due to personal preference. This recipe made some so-so store bought corn really shine!! I think a little sprinkle of parmesan cheese or feta would be a great addiditon as well. Thanks Evelyn. Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens - ZWT6.
  5. Boiled the corn first then brushed with butter. Intended to grill for a few minutes but the BBQ ran out of juice. This was the talk of the meal. We all loved the hint of cumin and the occasional punch of other flavours. This may just be my new standard for corn on the cob. Thanks for sharing.
