Cooking Ideas - Grilled Corn
There are a lot of great recipes using corn, but nothing beats corn on the cob in the summer. Grilling corn is a great summer option especially if you are already planning on using the grill.

Preparing the corn is pretty simple. Peel back (but don't remove) the husks and remove the silk. Pull the husks back and soak the ears in a pot of cold water for 30-45 minutes. When the grill is ready, remove the ears from the pot, shake off the excess water and place on the grill. Rotate the corn and brown the husks on all sides. Grill the corn for about 30 minutes. When done, remove from the heat. Let ears cool off before removing husks. Serve immediately.
