Fill a saucepan with a generous amount of water (the cobs need to be totally immersed in the water) and bring to the boil (NOTE: don’t add salt, this makes the corn tough!).
Remove all the leaves and threads from the corncobs. Put the cobs into the boiling water and cover. Cook for 20 minutes until done.
Drain and place on a serving dish. Everyone takes a cob and smears it all over with red palm oil and sprinkles herb salt over it.
Serviettes are essential with this meal. Great with a vegetable tart and carrot salad.
