In the heat of summer, when corn is abundant and sweet and at it’s peak what better thing than to grill it? The kernels caramelize into little bits of wonder. Grilled corn on the cob is very easy to make and a great addition to any summer celebration.
This grilled corn on the cob will be prepared with a spiced butter before we cook it. The butter will melt inside the husks and add tremendous flavor to our tender corn. We will not precook the corn but we will soak the husks so that they do not burn. This is a great and delicious way to cook it.
Here is what you need for this grilled corn on the cob with spiced butter recipe:
8 ears of corn in their husks — raw
¼ to ½ cup butter
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili Powder
Salt & Black Pepper
Melt the butter. Add all of the spices. Mix well and pour into a bowl. Place in the freezer and wait for butter to harden.
Soak the corn in some cold water. Pull away some of the husk and brush the corn with the spiced butter.
Heat your grill to high until hot. Reduce the heat to medium and place the corn unbuttered side up. Flip after about 9 minutes. Grill for about 9 more minutes. If your corn is older it might take a little longer to cook.
Remove from grill and carefully pull away the husks to enjoy!
