Our favorite way to enjoy Corn on the Cob is Grilled. When it is also gilded with a fresh Basil Butter you just can’t go wrong!
- Prepare Sweet Corn for the grill: soak whole ears in water for 20 minutes. Drain and grill over medium high heat for 10-15 minutes. (Soaking helps the corn to steam from the inside out and keeps the kernels from drying out).
- Shuck Corn and place back on grill to brown up a bit.
- Prepare Basil Butter: wash trim and chop Basil (we like the Thai Basil and Lime Basil Mix from this week’s Farmer Picks but you can use any type of Basil or other fresh Herbs). Mix Basil* with 1/4 cup softened Butter, stir well to combine
- Apply/slather Basil Butter on to Grilled Sweet Corn and enjoy!
*The amount of fresh Herbs is up to you: we use a handful of Basil leaves for this recipe. No need to chill the prepared Butter if you are using it right away and Basil Butter will keep in the fridge for a week or so – if it lasts that long!
