Grilled Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter
Cook fresh ears of corn as soon as possible after picking or purchasing them. The faster you get the corn from it's field to your plate, the sweeter it will taste. Grilled corn on the cob, when prepared correctly is the perfect compliment to your summertime barbecue.
Follow the easy directions below, and enjoy the sweetness of summer!
- 4 ears of fresh corn
- 4 Tbsp salted butter, softened
- 24 basil leaves
- Being careful to leave the husks attached, peel them back and remove the silks.
- Rinse each ear gently under cool water, and pat dry with paper towels.
- Rub 1 tablespoon of the softened butter evenly over each ear of corn.
- Press 6 basil leaves onto each buttered ear. (Arrange them evenly around each one.)
- Gently fold the husks back around the corn, and use kitchen string to tie them together at the top.
- When using a charcoal grill, cook the corn on the rack with the lid open over medium-hot coals for about 30 minutes or until tender. Turn and rearrange the corn periodically. When using a gas grill, close the lid and grill as instructed above.
