Grilled Corn

Grilled corn is a lip-smacking snack prepared with yellow colored corn, which is one of the widely grown grain crops in America. The leafy stalk produces corn ears which are covered with a soft silk and wrapped in husks. Each corn ear contains seeds known as kernels, which are consumed after being cooked. The corn ears are often grilled with their husks either on a charcoal grill or a gas grill. The husks are removed, and the corn ears are commonly served after spreading a mix of butter and salt.  


Grilled Corn Preparation Overview

The corn husks are pulled pack; the silk is removed; husks are pushed back; corn is soaked in cold water for a few minutes; and then grilled (in husks) on an oiled grill rack. The husks are pulled back for a couple of minutes during the end of the grilling process. Thereafter, the corn is served warm after brushing with butter and seasoning with salt.
