Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe
Description: Fresh con 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. 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 it's sweetness.
Soak ears, husk and all, in a bucket of water for 10 - 30 minutes.
Turn the grill on to a medium heat setting.
Remove ears from water. (Do not husk them). Place the ears on the grill.
Cook for ten to twelve minutes, turning every two minutes.
Allow to cool for a couple minutes, just enough so you can pull off the husk
without burning your fingers.
Serve with butter and salt.
Tip: For an even smokier flavor, remove a few of the husks and loosen
those remaining a little.
