Grilled Corn - The Sweetest Corn Ever! (2 ingredients)

Pin It

The juiciest and sweetest corn you will ever have...

So for the longest time every time I had a get together or function of any kind that involved grilling, the first question I was always asked was if I was going to make my grilled corn on the cob?

For the life of me I couldn't figure out why everyone loved my grilled corn on the cob so much.  I mean it wasn't rocket science or anything... just 2 simple ingredients and then the corn.
That is till I attended a picnic a few weeks ago.  I know now why everyone gets just downright giddy when I tell them I will be grilling corn on the cob. The corn we had at the picnic was nicely charred, (much better than what hubby produced to be honest).  However, the taste was bland.  Even with the unsalted butter and salt, it was "eh, ok" corn...
Not the BLOW YOUR MIND I WANT ANOTHER EAR kind of corn that I make.  This corn is seasoned beautifully.  You start it off that way, so the end result my friends is literally, a masterpiece!  Well, at least that is what my friends and family tell me!!  It's sweet and crunchy and just bursting with grilled flavor, did I mention it is seasoned perfectly?  But it doesn't stop there. Then, we slather those babies with some butter... well it's literally an explosion in your mouth. Sweet, buttery goodness!!

Ready for the recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20-25 grill time (low)
Yield: *depending on the cobs*

Ingredients:
Corn on the cob, husked
Aluminum foil (heavy duty)
Honey (your favorite kind)
Salt

Directions:
-Tear off a small strip of aluminum foil, enough to be able to completely cover your corn, and lay it flat.

-Drizzle about 1-1/2 tsp of your favorite honey right down the middle of the strip.  A shake of salt, or a pinch goes right after that, for each ear of corn.



-Lay your corn cob right on top of the honey and salt and roll it so almost all of the cob has some honey on it.  If you have some places that don't have that much honey, don't panic, it will taste perfect, trust me!!  I mean you can always have me over and I can be the taste tester and all... just sayin!!



-Wrap thoroughly, place on grill over indirect heat and grill for about 25 minutes.  If you want them more charred, a little longer.

-Remove from grill, have the butter handy and get ready for the compliments!!!



I told you it was super easy yes?  I would never steer you wrong!! ♥  So where is that aluminum foil...

Till next time!!
