I looove me some baked bacon lol I don't like it fried though.

If you put a cookie rack inside a cake pan it drains almost all the grease off it and makes it nice and crispy but not hard. YUM

Ok – you gals did it to me now. Went for some groceries yesterday and what do you think I bought?
That’s right – bacon
Now my mouth is watering for it and my brain keeps saying – mind your cholesterol and don’t be a dummy. I think my mouth and tummy are winning out anyway.
You gals are a bad, bad influence.

How long is it baked for? I am trying this.
We get the best bacon from a local meat market, its awesome. Not like that overpriced crap at the grocery store.
The meatmarket, even sends our armed troops relief carepackages of jerky.
But I've not had their jerky, have a dehydrator I'd love to start using. Cant wait to make fresh bananna chips.

You shouldn't have any problem telling when it is done. It won't have the same texture as fried - but it will feel/look not raw. Like not rubbery.
I cook it at 350F for 30-40mins or 20-30mins if it is on the cookie rack.

This summer I learned I love baked corn on the cob. I've never had it anyway but boiled - boy was I missing out!

I will have to try baked corn,
do you roll it in foil with butter salt/pepper
Ivd had it that way cooked on a grill its awesome, way better than boiled.

Loved the baked bacon with brown sugar on it,next time I will let it cook longer.

Cathy - No you just cut off the very top of the husk (where the silk is), leaving the rest of the husk on. Run some cold water down inside the top. Let any extra water run back out. Put it directly on the oven rack and bake @ 450F for 20mins and then 375F for another 20 to 30mins (until it is tender/done). The husk will look golden brown to almost black and it will be dry/crinkley.
It also makes the whole house smell amazing.
BTW - Works best with sweet corn.

I planted just a few corn stalks last year in the same spot I planted tomatoes but they didnt produce wont be trying , save garden space by planting those together.
that sounds easier.
I have also seen them cooked like that on a grill. Thx for info..

Cathy...have you tried planting with the "three sisters method"? It is the native american method of planting corn, with beans climbing the corn, and squash being a ground cover...it works!

No, but I just read your comment to hubby and we will sure give it a try this year and will see how it turns out.
Are there other plants that can be planted using this method? I've not heard of it before, but remember I'm still a beginner gardener, and can use all the tips I can get. Tell me more, tell me more.
Continue to learn so much on this site, Thx for sharing.

Corn grilled in the husk is awesome too. Thrown on a steak, burgers or whatever leave room for the corn, if you get the coals hot enough before you put the meat on you can do taters down in the coals that will be done in time for the leftovers. Wrapped in foil of course.
