Grilled Corn on the Cob

Sweet corn grilled in the husk is so tender and good that it needs no butter.

Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 45
Total Time: 45


  • 4 ears of corn, unhusked


  1. Preheat grill. Carefully peel back husks but do not detach. Remove as much silk as possible. Pull the husks back over the corn and secure the end by tying with a strip of husk. Soak the corn in cold water for 20 minutes. Remove from the water, shaking off excess.
  2. Grill the ears of corn, periodically rolling them for even cooking, until the kernels are tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the husks before serving.
