Sweet corn is abundant this time of year! Nothing beats the taste of fresh corn on the cob. We have tried multiple ways to cook our corn and one of the best ways is on the grill. It adds so much flavor and depth to the corn. It is always best to start with the freshest corn. Our vendors pick their corn either the night before or morning of the Market to ensure the ultimate freshness.
Grilling the corn:
If you love the smokey flavor, I would suggest removing the husks before grilling. You can leave them on but removing ensures the best grilled flavor. Before grilling either brush the corn with olive oil or soak in water for 15 minutes. Do not use butter – butter will burn.
Set your grill to medium high heat. Place your corn on the grill parallel to the grates. Leave on for 10 minutes but ensure you are rotating them often. Once done, we love to brush with a simple butter and salt. However if you are feeling adventurous, try sprinkling some parmesan and garlic butter. So delicious!
