Hi, this is Chef Lance Corralez with Cooking with Corralez. Today, I'm going to teach you how to jazz up your corn, make it really jazzy and fun. You're going to have one ear of corn. You're going to have about six sprigs of fresh chives. You have about five leaves of fresh mint. You have about four leaves of fresh basil. What we're going to do first and you're going to have an eighth of a pound of butter and one clove of garlic. So what we're going to do is we're going to first take this corn off this ear. You're going to see how it's done very nicely and very great. You're going to hold it down this way, come down, very simple. Then let the corn lay flat so the ear doesn't roll all around. Some people like doing it this way but then you're going to lose a lot of your corn. So a little bit you have left over you just come down like that. Then what we're going to do is turn it over again. We've got the corn, all done, look at that, beautiful. There's no meat left on that cob at all. We got all the kernels which you can see are right here. Then what we have is we have a hot saute pan, okay with melted butter. We throw the corn in. We're going to toss it around a little bit. This is the fun part. We set it down. Then what we're going to do is we're going to take the garlic clove. To cut a garlic clove you slice one end off, lay it up, slice it again and then you're going to mince it. You slice it very quickly, mince it up, garlic up. Then what you do is you take your fresh herbs. I take my mint and my basil and I roll it into like a cigar. This is called chiffonade and it means rope in French. You take your fresh chives and you're just going to cut into little pieces. Then while this is cooking you throw your herbs in and your garlic and you have your tongs and you mix it around. Look at that. Doesn't that look delightful? Oh if you were smelling it, you would get a little bit excited. This is a great simple way to jazz up your corn. I love it this way. This is Chef Lance Corralez with Cooking with Corralez, an easy way on how to jazz up the corn.
