Grilled Corn On The Cobb In The Husk

We love grilled corn.  However, we never grill it.  My kids beg for it when we go to an event that has it for sale.  Even the five year old is addicted.  So, after a quick Internet search on the best way to grill corn, I discovered it really isn't that hard.  So we tried it, and it was, in our opinion...DELICIOUS!



  • 8 medium ears sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Directions

  • 1. Soak corn in cold water for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the butter, basil, parsley and salt. Carefully peel back corn husks to within 1 in. of bottoms; remove silk. Spread butter mixture over corn.

  • 2. Rewrap corn in husks and secure with kitchen string. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Cut strings and peel back husks. Yield: 8 servings.
