    Man it's good! :eusa_drool:

    Cooked up my first batch tonight for dinner, the daughter and I were in heaven! {Also had vegetarian sloppy joes, yummy}


    Tender, juicy, with butter and salt!



    Now if I only would have had some home grown tomatoes to go with it, we would have had the perfect meal!

    What is that?

    Ripe compost on a open-faced bun?

    Tomatoes are about easy to grow as oranges are in Antarctica.

    pull back the husks, remove the silk and apply melted butter and soy sauce
    with twine, secure the husks around the cob and place on the grill

    so good, it will make you want to take back stuff you didn't steal

    I like to grill Corn in the husk.

    It's much sweeter that way.

    Heh...I know what you people call "corn," and I'm also familiar with the legitimate variety. Friend of mine from Georgia summed it up well:

    Had some last weekend, grilled in the husk. MmmMmm. Can't wait for the Farmer's Market, it is soooo much better.

    Are you under the impression that most of us haven't eaten fresh corn, or something?

    Of course FRESH corn is better than store bought

    FRESH everything vegetable is better than store bought.

    When I was growing sweet corn on my land, I would rip and ear off the stalk and eat it raw, it was so sweet and tender.

    From the moment the corn is picked, the sugars in it begin turning to starch.

    A matter of hours is all it take for one to taste the difference.

    ABSOLUTELY!

    Grilled in the husks, makes it sweeter!

    They have the BEST CORN here in Maine, come mid/end summer! I think it is because we did not grow genetically modified corn here, though a law passed last year that said Mainers could now grow genetically modified corn...:(I sure hope the farmers don't change and stay with the unmodified natural corn....it has been sooo good!

    If I don't grill it, I microwave it for 3 minutes ....still very yummy and you have pure corn verses boiling with all the water...
