Grilled Corn

Since July 4th is TOMORROW (just in case you missed it), I have been featuring some recipes for one of the staple BBQ days of the year.  Yesterday was homemade lemonade with 3 ingredients in less than 20 minutes.  Today, it's all about CORN!

Husked corn is a vegetable that does well on the grill.  Easy to prepare, the corn will 'steam' in the husk while the burgers, steaks, or chicken are cooking (or whatever it is you are grilling).  Fresh corn from the farmer's market?  Even better!

{Grilled corn (actually it's more steamed than grilled)}

{Soak husked corn in water for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking}

{Cook on grill until husks get brown}

{Peel husk back and enjoy!}

Grilled Corn

Makes 4 servings

4 husked corns
  1. Fill a sink with enough water to cover corn; you might need something to weight the corn down like a casserole dish or bowl.
  2. Soak corn for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to cooking. 
  3. Take corn out of the water and dry off the outer husk.
  4. Place corn directly on the grill.
  5. Cook corn 15-20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.  Husks should be a dark brown/black color.
  6. Carefully shuck corn before eating (corn will be hot!).
  7. Enjoy!
Corn like this is just perfect--not soft but not crunchy.  It's crisp and delicious with some salt and pepper! 

What do you typically grill on July 4th?  Any family traditions that you celebrate?  I'd love to hear them!
