Grilled Corn? Yes, Please!

I love summer for so many reasons. One of my favorite things is all of the yumminess that comes from the field. Our corn won't be ready to pick until the beginning of July, but it is available at great prices in Grocery stores now.

I use corn in lots of recipes-but my favorite way to eat corn is grilled. Its incredibly easy, and so delicious. You just throw them on the grill for about 20 minutes. I think they're best if you leave them in the husk(for those of you that don't know-that is the green stuff on the outside).


When they're done, I cut each end of with a large knife/cleaver(just enough to cut the bad kernels off). After the ends are cut, we shuck them. If you've never shucked corn-it's pretty easy. Just pull the husk off and then you silk it. The silk is that stuff between the kernels-it comes off pretty easily after its been grilled. Just be careful because it will be HOT.


I slather it with butter and put salt on. Real healthy, huh? I could eat a meal of just grilled corn if given the chance.


THIS is what I to look forward to in July. These pictures are from the summer of 2008-Evan was 11 months old and this was his first time "helping out" during the corn madness.

When I do corn on the grill I carefully peel back the husk and remove the silk. Put the husk back in place and soak the corn in water for at least an hour. It keeps the husk from burning so much and seems to cook the corn faster, kind of steaming it.

Sounds YUMMY! I love corn on the cob! My husband always says it takes too long to make and eat. I think it's so worth it!

Do you soak your corn before you grill it? I have heard some say yes and others say no.
