Grilled Sweet Corn Recipe
  • Husk the corn and remove all the silk; rinse with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Tear off 6 pieces of aluminum foil large enough to wrap each ear individually.
  • Spread 3/4 to 1 tablespoon of softened butter on each ear of sweet corn. Lay each of the buttered corn on a sheet of foil; salt and pepper to taste.
  • Wrap each of the ears individually in foil, securely wrapping both ends.
  • Place on the grill over medium heat. Grill for approximately 30 minutes, turning several times as they cook.
  • Unwrap an ear to check for doneness. If they are done the kernels of corn should not have a milky appearance and they should be slightly browned or charred in some areas. If not done, rewrap the ear and place back on the grill to cook for an additional 5 or 10 minutes; then check again for doneness.
