Monday was the first day of summer and here in Maine we're heartily welcoming it! Summer brings beautiful weather to our State, the perfect kind of weather for Barbecuing. Tonight is going to be a beautiful evening; so why not spend the time outside grilling? To get you started here's a grilled corn recipe that Kim, our recipe developer, shared in her cooking class last Friday.
Herb Grilled Corn on the Cob
6 ears corn
¼ cup (1/2 stick) softened butter
2 tablespoons fresh herbs (such as parsley, basil, thyme, rosemary) chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
-Preheat charcoal, wood or gas grill to medium-high heat (about 350 degrees F)
-Make flavored butter by combining the softened butter, herbs, lemon juice and pepper.
-Carefully peel back the husk from one ear of corn, starting at the top and leaving the bottom part intact. Use your hands, tear out the corn silk.
-Using your hands or a paper towel, spread ½ tablespoon of the flavored butter over the corn. Repeat with the remaining corn.
-Place the corn (in its husk) directly on the grill for 3 minutes. Turn the corn over, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kernels are bright and beginning to char. Serve hot.
