Grilled Corn on the Cob
Fresh corn on the cob is a real summertime treat. And it is extra special when it is grilled, adding a bit of a smoky taste. In addition to a great taste, grilled corn on the cob keeps the heat outdoors (versus boiling it indoors) on hot, late summer days.
Tip: The fresher the corn, the sweeter it is. If you are lucky enough to have fresh corn, pick the sweet corn in your garden just before eating it. Once picked, the sugar in the sweet corn begins to convert to starch, and gradually loses its sweetness.
*Plan on 1 ear per person
1. Soak ears, husk and all, in a bucket of water for 10 – 30 minutes.
2.Turn the grill on to a medium heat setting.
3.Remove ears from water. (Do not husk them). Place the ears on the grill.
4.Cook for ten to twelve minutes, turning every two minutes.
5.Allow to cool for a couple minutes, just enough so you can pull off the husk without burning your fingers.
6. Serve with butter and salt.
Tip: For an even sweeter flavor, peel back the husk down one side to squirt in about 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey, then replace the husk and grill as directed.
