I love corn on the cob, but I don't eat it off the cob... I take it off with a knife, ha. It's so tasty and there is nothing like a good cookout to welcome springtime! My favorite way to cook corn is on the grill, it's just so tasty! Plus, I have the perfect way to make sure you always have tasty golden buttery corn each time you grill.
It's three main steps, that's it.
Fill a baking pan full of water, add about 1 tablespoon of salt per cob. Submurge the corn into the pan with the husk still on, let sit for about 30-45 minutes.
Remove the corn from the water and shake dry. Remove the first layer of husk on the out side, and peel the others down so your corn looks like this... (make sure to remove all the little 'hairs' too)
Now butter the corn with margrine or soft butter (the kind in a tub). Use your fingers, it's easier and gets the butter into the groves. Now fold the husk back up to protect the corn. Place on the outter sides of the grill so you can cook the rest of your meal in the middle. Turn the corn every 10 minutes or so and by the time you are done grilling the rest of your meal (45-50 minutes) your corn should be ready!
Remove from grill, allow to cool and then remove husk to serve!
Delicious corn everytime!
