{How do i…?} grill corn

Delicious Grilled Corn Directions, by Make Life Lovely

I love summer corn. It reminds me of my mother’s garden, standing among the cornstalks, peeling back the husks, and eating it raw right then and there.   Over the years my corn palette had evolved and there are so many ways to enjoy that sweet summer corn. Here are two great ways to get different flavors using your grill.

{If you want that classic corn flavor} adapted from Make Life Lovely

  1. Carefully peel back the husks and remove the silk around the corn.
  2. Wrap the husks back around the corn and soak in water for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Remove the corn from the water and peel the husks back season with salt, pepper, and brush with softened butter.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  5. Grill for approximately 30 minutes, rotating the corn every few minutes.

{If you want that smoky flavor} adapted from Half Baked Harvest

  1. Preheat the grill on the highest setting.
  2. Remove the husk from each ear of corn. Brush the corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap the corn in one layer of aluminum foil. Grill for about 5 minutes each “side” – rotating corn 3 times during grilling.
  3. After the corn has been on the grill for 20 to 25 minutes I like to remove the foil and let the corn cook on the grill 5 to 6 minutes longer. This help the corn get a nice smoky grilled flavor and it leaves delicious charred marks.
  4. Remove the corn from the grill and if eating straight off the cob, allow the corn to cool 3 minutes. Then brush with butter and eat.
