Here is a great tutorial for grilling corn. I have never done it, but I am going to be trying it tonight. Have you tried it? I am teaching outdoor grilling at Thursday night's RELIEF SOCIETY MEETING (not enrichment -- ha ha, did you see the broadcast?). I think I may throw on some ears of corn along with the green beans, zucchini, peppers and PIZZA I am grilling.
I researched the nutritional value and found out thatcornactually doesn't have as much value as most other vegetables. corn is a starch. The sugars in corn start to become starches right after they are picked. The natural sweetness starts to go. It is best to eat them freshly picked.
corn is pretty high in calories comparatively. Remember last week, I mentioned a medium zucchini has 25 calories? Corn has 125 per large cob. There are 160 calories in 1 cup of corn. Very high in carbohydrates and calories. The caloric levels make it a great source of natural sugar energy. corn is a good vegetable source of protein. corn is nearly 10% protein. It does contain vitamins (B, A and E) and is good for skin care, the nervous system and maintaining low cholesterol.
eat it fresh while it lasts!
