These roasted kernels make tasty fingerfood. And with just five ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time, it's a simple dish to make. Vary the seasoning to suit your liking: give curry powder, or even cinnamon, a try. Check after 25 minutes to make sure smaller pieces of corn are not burning. Store any uneaten kernels in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To recrisp any soft kernels, reheat in oven on a sheet pan until crispy. Add even greater flavor to this recipe by tossing the corn with flavored vegetable oil such as basil- or chili-flavored oil.
