Corn on the Cob
4 ears corn, husk on
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 stick butter
salt and pepper, to taste
Soak corn with husk on in water with brown sugar 30–60 minutes to sweeten and to prevent charring.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Remove corn silk at ends of husks by cutting off sharply at end of cob and discard. Place corn on rack and grill, turning frequently, for 20–30 minutes, or until corn is tender. When cool enough to handle, remove husk and any remaining corn silk and serve with butter, salt, and pepper. Makes 4 servings.
VARIATION: Liven up your corn on the cob! Serve it with a light coat of mayonnaise sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.
