3. Rub Coconut Oil on Your Corn on the Cob

Corn on the cob is incredibly good with butter, but there is no end to the spices, herbs and oil that make a corn on the cob epic. For example… if you want a bit more coconut in your life, rub on some coconut oil, sesame seeds and cumin with salt for a tasty treat after you’ve boiled it and then whack it under the grill
