Grilled Corn

It's grilling season, and I LOVE grilling season. How much do I love it? Last week, when I was feeling like I was on my death-bed, I wanted to grill. I wanted grilled corn on the cobb. I should have been craving some brothy soup, but no. I started to feel a bit better Saturday, and thought I could stomach it. Wrong. But it wasn't the corn's fault, I was premature in thinking I'd kicked my stomach bug. Drat.

But I will say.... It tasted sooooooo good. It was worth the relapse I suffered Sunday.

This is a way to cook corn that our friend's Jamie & Chria introduced me to. I'd always boiled it in the past. But grilling is way better. Yes, I said 'way' better. Like totally.

If you haven't tried to grill it directly on the grate, please do. It brings out the sweetness and tastes wonderful.

Grilled Corn on the Cobb
(this is almost painfully too easy to write as a 'recipe', almost)

Heat BBQ on high. Wash and clean corn.

Place corn directly on the grill. Cook approximately 10-11 minutes, turning every 2 minutes. Corn should get a slightly burnt look on some of the kernels.

Remove from heat, slather with butter and sprinkle with pepper. Serve hot and buttery! Yum.

Guten appetit.

Yet another reason I want to cry because I don't have a grill!
