Grilled Corn Recipe

Our local farmers market has some wonderful fresh corn this time of the year. Here’s my favorite way to fix it. The main reason I love it is because I have to do hardly any of the work. I soak the corn, wrap it in foil and hand it over to my husband. He’s in charge of all things grilling related. The corn cooks right along with our burgers or dogs and only needs a dab of butter and some salt before serving.

Total time:
Serves: 4
  • 4 ears of corn
  • vegetable oil
  • butter and salt to taste
  1. Start by chucking your corn. Make sure you get all those little strands of silk out.
  2. Put the ears of corn into a bowl and cover them with cold water. Soak them for about 30 minutes. Take them out of the water and let them dry on a plate lined with a clean tea towel (or a paper towel).
  3. Once they are fairly dry, brush them with a little vegetable oil and wrap them in foil.
  4. Grill them over medium heat for 20 to 25 minutes or until the corn is soft.
  5. Tear part of the foil open and add some butter and salt before serving.

If there’s any corn left over (yeah right…. ), cut it off the cob and use it in salsa, salads or soups. You an even freeze it if you don’t want to use it right away. The smokiness of the grilling adds some wonderful flavor.
