Campfire Corn

I love camping. I love taking a few days to unplug, to hang out in nature, and to eat delicious, campfire-cooked foods. This corn on the cob is no exception. It’s one of the simplest recipes I’ve ever made, and it’s fantastic.


  • Fresh corn in its husk (unshucked)


  1. Make your campfire.
  2. Set the unshucked corn off to the side in the ashes. Keep it out of the flames
  3. Let the corn steam in its own husk for 20 minutes.
  4. Carefully roll the corn out of the ashes and let it cool for a few minutes.
  5. Peel back the husk until it makes a handle. Don’t worry about the corn silk!
  6. Carefully hold the corn over some flames to singe off the corn silk and make some yummy char marks!
  7. Enjoy!
