Grilled Corn

Grilled Corn on the Cob

  Let me tell you, I was skeptical.  I like the traditional way of cooking corn on the cob just fine but Jesse wanted to try something different.  I was even less enthusiastic as I was reading how to do it and it was talking about it getting covered in ash (which did NOT happen).  He was determined and he was cooking dinner so who I am to argue?  Glad I didn't!
  After work sitting outside in the sun at 80F while your husband grills some yummy dinner, doesn't get better than that!  The only thing that would make it better is if we had a puppy.  Looking like it will be the fall or winter before we get one though.  The last litter that was born from the breeder that we are wait listed with was not as large as we had hoped so I don't think we will get one from the June 25th litter.  I'm not a patient person by nature, I like instant gratification...which is probably why I love stalking the hit counter on this blog.  Anyway!

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 corn on the cobs per person
  • Enough water to submerge all the corn
Directions:
  • Preheat your grill to 350F or a "medium" setting
  • Peel the top layers off the husk but do not remove the entire husk 
  • Soak the corn for about 15 minutes in cold water
  • After soaking peel back the very tips of the husk and remove the silk
  • Spray the exposed corn with olive oil
  • Place on your now warmed up grill and rotate as needed to prevent from blackening
  • Cook for about 15 minutes
    • Once the husk shows the silhouette of the corn then it's done!
    • Remove from heat so it doesn't over cook which will make it not yummy and mushy
The grilled corn was so good, didn't need to add butter or anything.  It was sweet, snappy and delicious!  Jesse also grilled some sweet potatoes as well as red & green peppers, these were delicious.  I force myself to eat peppers because I feel the need to increase my vegetable intake but I don't really like them.  I REALLY liked these.  The pork tenderloin he grilled was also very very very good and grilled to perfection.  Good job babe!
