A friend and faithful Fat Girl follower, Julie, sent me the following. I felt it was awesome/controversial enough to warrant a post.
ZOMG! This looks amazing, but some people recommend not cooking anything this way, since chemicals in the plastic MAY-PERHAPS-COULD leech into the cooking water and the food. Hmm. Normally I'd come down on the side of that particular nay-saying source up there, but this time I hafta say that, sure, while it's prolly not a great idea to always cook your corn this way, the once or twice a year you DO probably doesn't expose you to significantly more carcinogens than us city-dwellers get in any average day around town. Really people, live a little.
This also opens up whole new doors for me, cooking-wise. About twice a month Fat Hubby and I cook for large-ish groups of people, and this can go so much further than just corn.
Help me out here, people – I’m still fairly queasy and not all that imaginative lately. How will you use this awesome, easy, summer-friendly cooking method?
That reminds me of The Great Lentil Challenge, and that I never declared a winner. The winner is – No One. Seriously, I must be the only lentil-lover in this place, because not a single entry was submitted. Maybe I should have run a Great Bacon Challenge or something. Hrm.
