If you love juicy, crunchy, grilled corn...this easy goof proof recipe is for you.
Fresh shucked corn is soaked in seasoned water, then grilled hot and fast. Then served immediately with loads of melted butter. I place the cob directly on the grill so it gathers all the smoky flavor. This method produces moist flavored corn and eliminates the problem of removing hot messy husks at the table. Try it, you'll love it.
Start by cleaning and rinsing the corn. In a large stock pot, add 1 gallon fresh water and stir in the salt and sugar. Add the corn and soak for at least 30 minutes. (I pulled the husks back and kept them attached to the cob of two ears just to give the serving plate a little attitude!)
Drain corn and wipe dry. Place on a hot grill.
Grill for 10-12 minutes, turning every 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and brush with melted butter.
It's summertime and the grillin' should be easy and you'll find this lip smackin' recipe addresses all your grilling needs. Enjoy!
Here is the recipe:
Grilled Corn on the Cob
