  • 4 ears corn
  • Butter and salt for serving*


  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush the grate with canola oil.
  • Peel all but the innermost layer of husk from each ear of corn. You should be able to see the corn kernels through the last layer of husk.
  • Trim any silk protruding from the tip of the ear.
  • Place the ears of corn on the prepared grill and cook the corn, rotating every 2 minutes, until the husks are scorched and the kernels are deep golden yellow, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove the corn from the grill. Allow it to cool for several minutes, then peel back the layer of husk and silks. Season with butter and salt. Dig in!
  • Alternatively, you can cut the kernels off the cobs and use in salads, salsas, soups and more.
