    I have never been a huge fan of deep fried food, but I draw the line at deep fried sticks of butter *shutters*

    I, and my sister and cousin, used to do just that. My uncle didn't like it too much, it was his cornfield.

    I thought, the idea was to get AWAY from not so good for you, foods?

    I'm going to try this. That is if I can find my deep frier which I put in the basement last year.

    You dont have to fry today to get the taste and texture of fried foods, for example.

    My wife and I buy Oven Fry by the same people who make Shake and Bake, we use it on pork chops and chicken, not all the time, but occaisionally, its very good and not greasy. We cut all the visable fat off the pork chops and the chicken is boneless skinless. Give it a try you may be pleasantly surprised.

    I am also considering buying an Air Fryer

    I recall a number of years ago a politician on the campaign trail doing exactly that and some media types making fun of him - as if he'd committed some silly gaffe by doing something weird - when they were actually the ones who were clueless. I can remember coming home with bags of sweet corn after visiting my grandparents' farm, and nibbling on an ear right there in the car. And when we'd get home, a lot of times we'd just boil up a goodly amount and make that our dinner.

    I grew up in Indiana, and well remember the delicious sweet corn there. It's hard to find anything comparable here in Arizona. (Oddly, the best I've had here comes from Church's Chicken.) My sister back in Indiana had an order of some expensive local sweet corn sent to me a few years ago, but I didn't think it was all that good. The kernels were very small, and the advertised "sweetness" seemed artificial and sort of overwhelmed the natural taste of the corn, which is what most of us eat it for in the first place. The variety that I remember my grandmother growing in her garden was called Golden Bantam.

    In the '60s, my mother's pre-WWII Dutch pen pal came to visit, and at Sunday dinner she was somewhat horrified to see corn on the cob on the table. Apparently, they don't - or didn't at the time - eat corn that way in the Netherlands; corn on the cob was animal feed. With butter and salt and some basic instructions, however, we were able to make a believer out of her.

    Corn on the cob is animal feed but it's not the sweet variety that we find so delicious. Every year, I try to get a half dozen ears of fresh corn and cook them up for a yummy binge. S-o-o good.

    The OP, however, is lost on me.

    Huh? Are you suggesting that sweet corn is not "corn on the cob"? I've never in my life heard anyone suggest such a thing.

    When I was in Japan I went to Kamakura beach one day. All along the route into the beach were lines and lines of vendors selling roasted corn on the cob. Who would have thought the Japanese were such big fans of roasted corn!

    I like it fried but it has to be fresh. Frozen corn on the cob is pure yuck!
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
