Sweet Corn in the Oven

Milho doce no Forno

If there's a snack I love to eat, it's Sweet Corn in the Oven very warm, fresh from my grandmother's hot oven.

Since I was a child, corn has been a food always present at home. Whether for curry dishes, full of sauce, with cooked sweet corn, or sweet corn in the oven, very crispy.

There's plenty of it in my grandma's kitchen and I LOVE it!

Now that I no longer live near my grandmother, I miss that call in the middle of the day “come by my house and I have good corn for you” or “today I have a nice surprise, but I won't tell you what it is!”. ahah

So I really have to do it myself. And I love it, exactly because it reminds me of my grandmother and her wonderful cooking.

Perhaps my biggest inspiration in the kitchen! ❤️

The big secret to be very similar to grandma's recipe is to let the corn roast to become crunchy.

The rest, only my grandma's hands can do, but I keep trying...
