Green corn is becoming very popular, and can be bought at most good greengrocers. Required: Cobs of fresh green corn.

Boiling water.

Oiled butter.

Salt, pepper, and cayenne.

Remove the outer husks from the cobs and strip off every thread of the silky fibre; lay the cobs in a pan with boiling water to cover them, and let them boil gently from ten to twenty minutes. After they have boiled about ten minutes, try a kernel to see if the raw taste has gone; if it has, drain the cobs out of the water at once, for if boiled too long they become hard and the flavour is not so nice.

Serve the corn in a hot dish with a tureen of oiled butter carefully seasoned with salt, pepper, and cayenne.

Cost, about 2d. a cob.
