My thoughts exactly, they're just as yummy when grilled & little charred...

Ummm sounds delicious...

I'm having a Falling Down moment. I keep visiting Lidl hoping they look as good as the photo but they are always dry or rotten - at least in Monmouth. Plus it's one of the most customer unfriendly shops I've ever been in as they don't open extra check outs unless queues are 20 deep. Bah humbug.

That's a shame as the ones I got on sun were lovely & fresh. Maybe try getting their early to have a pick of the best & hopefully it won't be too busy either...

I think early in Monmouth is a week last Tuesday.

Also two for 45p at Aldi if you don't have a Lidl nearby

Fresh or prepacked?

no definitely not, tastes much better boiled than BBQed!

Fresh Corn on the cob tastes miles better than regular corn. At 20p each can't go wrong. (Even if it does mean shopping in chaotic Lidls,... Heat added :-)

In the microwave for approx 12 minutes for one corn on cob just a tad of water absolutley gorgeous.....great price too, hot from me.

are these tastier than the asda ones?

Put them in the microwave with all their skin on. Cook on full for 4 minutes per cob. Carefully remove from microwave with oven gloves, cut off the fat end and squeeze the pointy, furry end. The cob will drop out with none of the silky strands on, perfectly cooked. They retain far more flavour this way too.

Corn on the cob sells for about 4 for a quid or £1.25 so 80p IS GOOD deal not a lot of savings but pennies add up and its 1 of your 5 a day
thanks for the info kikai

As above and then char on the gas cooker add salted butter to taste....mmmmm
Not sure about it being one of your 5 a day though.

Leave the husks on - it's nature's own steamer. I throw them on the BBQ like that, they steam in their husks and the burning outer shell gives it a bit of smokeyness. Works just fine in the oven or microwave though.

Shuck them like this:

And I thought 47p for 2 at Asda was cheap. It's nice when Asda gets the British ones in though. One case where you can actually tell the difference, although some imports like the Dutch ones aren't bad either.

Best boiled for me as I would then get a sweetcorn juice drink which is heaven especially for very sweet sweetcorn. The cob from oven or BBQ could also be boiled in water for 30 mins to get a drink too.

20p each is brilliant. Love my corn buttery & spicy. Cheers for the heads up OP.

Prepacked but still taste really nice.

"Remember, sweet corn waits for no one and it’s best served the same day it’s picked. With every subsequent day, the sugars in the kernels get more starchy and that mouthwatering flavor starts to fade."

I have only ever had sweetcorn straight off the plant (I mean within 15 mins its in the steamer) so cannot say if the above is still the same. It used to be that sugar content began to fall within minutes of being picked.

Me too. Delicious !

I've never tried microwaving in their leaves but I have stripped them, wrapped the cobs in microwave cling film and zapped for 4 minutes. I'd've thought that 12 mins. would incinerate them!

great deal

Always queues in Lidl regardless of busy times. I actually went in one Saturday and all 7 tills were open. Should have taken a photo as no one would ever believe it and it has not happened since!

Leave the husks on, soak them for 20 minutes in water, then throw them on the BBQ.
