Taste of Summer: Grilled Corn

Grilled corn is one of those recipes that makes summer.  Fresh corn roasted on the grill - nothing tastes better.  Grilling enhances the flavor and the aroma as it roasts is wonderful. Grilled corn is also an easy and inexpensive side to make.

I used to remove the silk from the corn and let it soak in water before grilling.  Not any more.  I just put the corn on the grill husks and all.  If I want some of the kernel charred , I pull out some of the outer husks.      I  blacken  the corn husks on all sides.  Once the corn is done,  I let the corn cool and serve with butter, salt and pepper.  A great summer food.

  1. I still haven't bought any fresh corn this I really crave some.

  2. Can't wait until fresh local corn is at the farmers' market, another couple of weeks probably, to try this as so many people swear by it. I always boil it for a couple of minutes, but I remember growing up on the farm, I'd pull an ear off the stalk in the field, husk it and eat it as is. :-)

  3. Your photos are very mouth-watering. We've only had corn once so far this summer. Here in Michigan the season hasn't really started yet. Looking forward to the local product!
