Grilled Corn on the Cob

Yes, you read that right.

No giant pot of boiling water.

No sticky stove.

Just delicious, sweet, corn on the cob.  A true treat of summer, the fresher the better!

Now, why would you want to grill corn? 

Well, why not?  I’m all for not having any extra dishes to wash and not getting the house any warmer by cooking in the summer. 

Wondering how you manage this magnificent thing? 

Here’s how:

First, peel off a few outer layers, but leave most of the corn husk in place.  Why you ask?  Because I don’t like my corn blackened (Ok, I really don’t care, but my kids prefer non-burnt food.  So husks it is!)

Then, soak the corn in some water like so.   Soak for at least 15 minutes.  Longer isn’t going to hurt anything.

Please don’t skip this step.  Fire hazard and all of that.  Not to mention that it’s a waste of good corn to just let it burn. 

Then, line them up on your grill.  Turn them frequently so they don’t burn and get done evenly.

It’s ok if the husks get a little…..dark brown.  The corn inside will be just fine as long as you left some husk on and soaked them.

Let them cook for about 10-15 minutes until you can smell the delicious corn goodness.

Then…..take them off, slather them with butter, and ENJOY!
