Make Corn On A Stick Using Camping Cookware

Corn on the cob is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer.  It is so sweet and juicy.  Unfortunately, farmers in Minnesota have gotten so

much rain and cold this year that it’s been difficult to grow any crops including corn.  Nevertheless, we have still been able to find good corn in our local grocery store and you can also find it at various sweet corn stands throughout the state.

Corn on a stick is also a popular treat in Minnesota.  Thousands of people go to the Minnesota State fair every year in August and eat Corn on a stick.  Corn On A Stick is just a long wooden skewer pushed into the cob so you can eat the corn on a stick just like you would it it was on your plate.  But you can also carry it

around and take in to all the sites at the Minnesota State fair too.  We took some corn and skewers to our Camp site and cooked a kettle of corn on my old Coleman Stove.  It was delicious.  Make sure you add lots of butter and a little salt.  We like to use Spray butter “I Can’t Believe It’s Butter”.  You might even want to sprinkle a little garlic salt or onion salt on the corn.  If you have a prefered spice, use it but leave room for the delicious taste of the juicy corn.  Also, don’t shuck the corn until you get to the camp site.

My daughter Jenny and her husband Justin took their two kids to the Glencoe Days Celebration this year where everybody eats lots of corn.  Glencoe Days is being held Friday and Saturday, June 24th-25th.  Many of the celebration’s favorite activities, including live music, great food, and fireworks, will continue at Oak

Leaf Park in Glencoe Minnesota. The celebration’s annual parade will be held Saturday, June 24 at 3:00 p.m.  My grandson Hunter had some corn at Glencoe Days and you can see in the picture how much he liked it.

I encourage you to try corn on a stick or corn on the cob at Glencoe Days or when camping in the future.  All you need is a fire, some cookware like a camp stove and a Stansport Black Granite 2 Quart Kettle filled with water, and some long wooden skewers.

Stansport’s Black Granite 2 Quart Kettle has a durable non-stick finish that will withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees which is perfect for boiling water for corn on the cob.

You can boil water in just about any kettle.  Cast Iron kettles work good when placed directly over an open fire like on a tri pod grill.  You can use a charcoal grill or a propane grill (anything that will get the water boiling).

Be careful handling the corn when its done because it will be very hot for a little while.  And always remember, “The Joy is in the Journey”.
