The Most Delicious Grilled Corn On The Cob Ever

There is nothing in the world as good as fresh grilled sweet corn. And I promise you this grilled corn is so good it should be illegal.

What I do here is grow my own fresh tarragon but you can purchase it fresh at the grocery store in the produce section or you can buy powdered dry tarragon if you can.

What you'll want to do is pull the shucks down off the ears of corn and remove the silks. If you have fresh tarragon sprinkle each ear of corn with fresh chopped tarragon. If you can't get fresh tarragon get powdered tarragon. Brush each ear of corn with butter and then pull the shucks back up over the corn.

Grill your corn on a medium hot grill for about 15 minutes on each side and your corn should then be done. I promise you that you'll have the most delicious grilled corn that you'll ever eat in your life.

I don't know how many people over the years have asked me for the recipe for the special glaze for my grilled corn. And once you taste it I'll bet you'll make it every time you grill corn because it turns great grilled corn into something so wonderful you'll never forget it.

1. 1/4 Cup Of Soy Sauce.

2. 1/4 Cup Of Rice Wine Vinegar.

3. 2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Garlic.

4. 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar.

Mix all of your ingredients together in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and use a pastry brush to brush on your corn as it grills. Be sure to turn your corn often so it doesn't burn and brush your glaze on often. This corn will be so delicious. Serve with plenty of butter. It is so delicious.

Serve wedges of lime with your grilled corn for a delicious tasty treat.

Rescue For Corn Past Its Peak

If you want to cook corn on the cob but you should have cooked it last week add a tablespoon of sugar to the water your boiling it in instead of salt. Salt will toughen corn especially corn that is past its peak. Bring the water to a boil with out the corn in it and then add the corn on the cob. Cook for about three minutes after it comes back to a boil after adding the corn. You'll end up with perfect corn every time.

Corn On The Cob Cooked In The Husk

For a quick addition to grilled meals cook corn on the cob in the husks. Remove the inner husks and the silk and then pull the remaining husks back up around the corn. Cook until done turning often. You can wear rubber gloves when removing silk from fresh corn and just twist it in your hands and the silk will come right off.

We know corn as a vegetable and a grain, which makes it one of our most important foods. Corn is delicious grilled, boiled, creamed or added to other dishes. In the American south, " Silver Queen " is the favorite variety of corn. It is a wonderful corn that is easy to grow and its delicious. If your growing your own corn go the extra distance to find silver queen corn to grow in your garden. When your corn is about two foot tall plant pole beans at the foot of each stalk of corn and let your pole beans grow up each stalk of corn.

If your buying fresh corn the peak season is May through September but canned and frozen corn is available anytime. You will not want to refrigerate corn for over three days to insure the best flavor possible. Remove the silks and husks just before you cook the corn. You can remove the silks from the corn but leave the shucks on. Soak the corn in water for about two hours and then grill the corn in the shucks. You'll end up with a almost steamed corn that will be delicious and tasty.
