Grilled Corn on the Cob

I've been cooking corn on the cob like this for years and can't believe I haven't blogged it yet. This is so easy folks, no need to do anything fancy. Just follow these steps for an awesome ear of corn. I have submitted this recipe to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck.
  • corn on the cob
  • margarine
  • salt and pepper

Soak the corn in water for about 30 minutes before grilling to help keep the husks from burning.

Flip it over about half way through the soaking process.

Heat your grill to about 350. Lay the corn on the grill. (Yes that's it, don't shuck it, don't pull off the silks, just lay it on the grill.)

After 8 minutes rotate 1/3 of a turn.

After 8 more minutes, rotate it another 1/3 of a turn.

After 8 more minutes remove it from the grill. (That's a total of 24 minutes on the grill.)

Now this corn is hot so don't burn  yourself. Pull back the husks one or two at a time making your way around the corn until they are all pulled back. That is your handle. Pull the silk and it should slide right off, there may be one or two strays that you have to go after. But, for the most part they should all come off.
(I forgot to take a pic of this part, I was so excited about eating it.) Rub some margarine on your cob, a little sprinkle of salt and if you wish some black pepper.

Enjoy!! We had roasted beets and a Gardein Chicken Fillet with our corn.

    1. Thank you. This is our favorite way to eat corn. Also, after it's cooked if you have leftovers, cut it off the cob and toss it into a salsa. Yummmm
