Grilled Herbed Corn On The Cob

This evening has topped off a lovely day in the Pacific Northwest...we finally got some summer weather and decided to make the most of it and barbequed ribs.  Gunnar requested my grilled herbed corn on the cob and I thought it would be nice to share the simple recipe with you.  Grilled herbed corn on the cob is easy, tastes great and cooks very quickly.  I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Grilled Herbed Corn On The Cob
What you will need:
Desired number of ears of corn, unwrapped, clean and patted dry
Several sprigs of fresh herbs such as Rosemary, Thyme, Savory and Basil  (be creative!)
Butter or PAM cooking spray
Squares of foil big enough to wrap ears of corn

To clean the fresh herbs, shake them lightly and rinse them gently.  Place on a paper plate or towel and lay a paper towel over them to dry them a bit.

Rosemary and Thyme go
well with corn on the cob!
Pressing excess moisture from
the herbs

Lightly butter or spray your foil squares with Pam.  Lightly salt and pepper if desired.  Place the ear of corn in the center of the foil and lay the herbs beside and top of the corn, as shown below.

Ready to wrap the corn
Just roll it up and its ready for
the grill

Once your corn is on the grill you will want to turn it about every 5 minutes until it is done, in about 20 minutes.

Gunnar turns the corn to ensure
even cooking

When the corn comes off the grill it will look like this, slightly charred on the outside but perfect inside!

Now all you have to do is carefully unwrap the corn from the foil (remember, it will be hot!) and enjoy!

Cooked to perfection and
ready to eat!

Have fun experimenting with different herb and flavor combinations.  Another fun way to flavor the corn is to spread
herbed butter on the foil before you wrap the corn.  Check out my Let's Eat! column for a great recipe for herbed butter!
Enjoy your grilled corn and all the other wonderful produce that nature is kind enough to provide this time of year!
How do you grill your corn on the cob?  I'd love to hear your ideas!

Here we are enjoying our bbq'd ribs and corn on the cob!
