Grilled sweet corn
8 ears fresh sweet corn
Several tablespoons vegetable oil
1 stick butter, softened
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat charcoal or gas grill.
Use the boiled corn on the cob recipe to prepare corn, allowing the corn to sit for 10-15 minutes after adding to the boiling water. Remove corn from water and pat dry. Lightly coat corn with vegetable oil. Scrape grill grates, then apply oil to the grates using a paper towel and tongs to prevent sticking.
Grill corn until charred. Remove from grill.
If desired, mix butter with 1-2 tablespoons of herbs, such as parsley and chives, and season corn with herbed butter and salt and pepper to taste.
