Have you Ever Had Sweet Roast Corn on the Cob ?

It is common to find roast corn cooking on an open coal pot on the streets in African countries. If you’re hungry, you can just stop, buy one, and eat it while walking.

Often times, this quick and easy appetizer is a favorite with villagers gathered around a fire telling folktales.

Here in the US, we usually steam it on the grill. After removing the husk, we wrap it in foil and place it on the grill.

But now you can try it a different way, grilled on an open fire.

Here's what you do:

Remove husk. Put uncovered ears on the hot grill. Rotate while cooking as needed, until tender.

Remove from grill when ready. Serve hot.

You can also try other grilled appetizers like sweet potatoes, plantains or cassavas. Just grill these favorite African staples to go along with your barbecue.
