- Most people tend to cook corn on the cob by putting removing the husks and placing the corn on the cob in boiling water. While this is a perfectly good way to enjoy this food I prefer to keep the corn in the husks and grill them.
fresh corn on the cob
- Without removing the husks soak the corn on the cob in a bucket or large dish or cold water for 1 hour.
- Heat a grill to medium heat.
- Remove the soaked corn from the water and place it on the grill. Do not remove the husks.
- Monitor the grill and turn the corn every few minutes to keep it from burning. Do not use your hands; the corn will be hot.
- After you have turned the corn 4 or 5 times and it has been on the grill for a total of approximately 10-12 minutes the husks will be charred but not burnt. Remove the corn at this point and turn off the grill.
- Carefully remove the husks from the corn. It will be hot some you should use cooking gloves or something similar.
- Scrape away any remaining bits of husk from the corn, add butter and salt and pepper and enjoy.
TIPS AND WARNING :
- Consider adding parmesan cheese to the corn along with the butter and salt and pepper. This is a nice taste that you will enjoy.
- Be careful not turn burn yourself on the hot grill or when handling the husks after you remove the corn from the grill.
