The barbecue season is coming to an end with autumn knocking on the door. But there is still time for that last barbecue dinner. Even if you’ve cleanead the terrace and stowed your grill in the garage, you should definitly consider to take it out again and make these lovely bacon wrapped corncobs. The recipe is from my colleague F and I can’t thank him enough for it. Bacon and corn, two of my favourite ingredients, are a heavenly combination.
Take one fresh corncob per person. Remove corn husks from corncobs and boil in salted water for 10 minutes. Remove from water and let cool. Wrap each corncob in 3-4 rashes of bacon (or pancetta), secure with tooth picks. Grill on a barbecue until the bacon is crispy and nicely coloured. Be careful not to burn, make sure to turn regularely. Eat while still warm, don’t forget to remove the toothpicks!
