Grilled Corn on the Cob
We are definitely a corn family. My son is ten and as soon as he could walk, we would find him rummaging in the refrigerator after every single dinner where we had corn on the cob. He would be looking for leftovers. He would take out cold corn on the cob and just gnaw on it. He loved it.
For his 4th birthday, when I asked him what he wanted for dinner, he had one request. He said, “I want cold corn in a bowl.” I was crying laughing at his request but he was absolutely serious. And that is what he had.
My entire family loves corn and we probably eat it at least once or twice a week. Sometimes more. I also try to add it to other recipes to get some veggies in there when I can.
We often go to the farmers market and my son loves shuck the fresh corn that we are buying. He just loves anything to do with corn. For our recipe below, he is the one that usually puts everything together and gets the corn ready to go on the grill.
His only stipulation is that he gets to choose the first (and usually the biggest) piece of corn and he gets any of the leftover corn. He begged me to let him be a part of this post because he said that no one loves corn as much as he does. Honestly, that is probably the truth.
My absolute favorite way to make corn is to grill it on the grill. We grill out several times a week and we almost always have corn as well.
To make our favorite corn on the cob recipe, you need a few things:
Freshly Ground Pepper
Tear off several strips of aluminum foil. We wrap each piece individually so you need enough to cover the entire ear of corn. We cut the butter into pats and rub each piece of corn down with covering the entire ear of corn. Then we use a pepper grinder to grind fresh pepper on each ear and sprinkle sea salt on them as well. Next I drizzle a little olive oil on each ear of corn to create a lot of moisture in the
I cook each ear for around 13-15 minutes and I turn them frequently so they don't burn. You want to cook them for at least 13 minutes so that the kernels are tender and easy to eat.
Remove corn from foil and eat immediately. You don't even need butter or anything else. They are perfect this way!
