Keep an eye out that the store or Farmer’s Market for summer deals on corn on the cob. Often I’ll see corn featured for 4 or 5 ears for $1 – that’s a great inexpensive way to get dinner on the table.
Grilling corn this way gives you a nice toasty sweet flavor with kernels that aren’t soggy or mushy at all. It makes the perfect summer side dish – texture, flavor, freshness, it’s all here!

Look at the kernels of corn, and you’ll see some that have started to “shrinkle” – that means they are nice and caramelized and yummy!
Grilling, at its finest!

Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe
Grilled Corn on the Cob
- 4 ears of corn
- Shuck the corn (meaning clean all the husks and the silks off the cob).
- Over medium heat, grill cobs of corn directly on the grill until it gets some dark golden brown areas, about 30 minutes. You’ll also see, what my husband refers to as shrinkle. When some of the kernels start to shrivel and shrink, this means the corn is nice and grilled and sweet.
- Remove the corn from the grill. Add a sprinkle of salt and a light smear of butter if desired, but it’s so good that you don’t need the salt or butter.
