Grilled Corn on the Cob

Ingredients

· 4 ears fresh corn, in their husks· Butter (or an herb butter) for serving

Instructions

Step 1Prepare your grill, gas or charcoal, for direct, high heat. (About 550°F) You know the grill is hot enough if are able to hold your hand one inch above the grill for only 1 second.Step 2Grill corn in husks: The corn husks will protect the corn from burning or drying out while it is on the hot grill.If you want a bit of char on your corn, peel off a few of the outer layers of the corn husks first, before grilling.Place the corn in their husks on the hot grill.Cover the grill. Turn the corn occasionally, until the husks are completely blackened and charred on all sides, about 15 to 20 minutes.Step 3Remove silks and charred husks: Remove the corn from the grill. Let them sit for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle.Remove the silks and charred husks from the corn. If you need to, use a damp towel to protect your hands from any sharp edges from the charred corn husks as you peel them off.Step 4Serve with butter. (Or you can sprinkle with a little chili powder, cotija cheese, and some lime juice for a Mexican twist.)
