It's that time of year again, when we love to grill outside on the BBQ.
Corn is perfect for grilling: it even comes in its own wrapper. Here is a simple way to make delicious grilled corn.

Grilled Corn in Husks

Seasoned with butter, parmesan cheese and parsley, grilled corn in the husks is especially good. Be sure to give the ears a long soak before putting them on the grill. Hot off the grate, the kernels are moist and tender with a wonderful, sweet flavor.


* 4 ears sweet corn, in husks
* 1/4 cup butter, softened
* 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1. Carefully peel back husks from corn to within 1 inch of bottom; Remove silk. Combine the butter and parsley and spread over corn.

2. Rewrap corn in husks and secure with string. Soak in cold water
for 20 minutes; drain.

3. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until
tender, turning often. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
