Grilled Corn

Nothing says summer like a sweet and buttery ear of corn. We don’t eat corn very often but when it is in season and grown locally we like to toss a couple of ears on the grill, husks and all.

Forget rummaging through each ear of corn at the market. You don’t need to peel back the husks and inspect each one. Just grab what you need and fire up the grill. Run each cob in its husk under cool water for a quick rinse then toss the ears, husks and all, onto a hot grill and roll them around until the husks are black – 15-20 minutes. Let them cool for about 5 minutes before removing the husks. Peeling the husks can be a bit messy so we like to have a paper bag outside by the grill where we can discard the husks and keep the mess out of the kitchen. Finally, just brush each ear with some butter and a little black pepper and voila!

Seriously, this is the easiest and tastiest way to enjoy corn on the cob!
