Grilled Corn


Corn cooked on the grill becomes very sweet with a subtle smoky flavor that is delicious. This recipe is one of my summer staples to go with grilled meats. It is so easy to prepare and takes only minutes to cook. Just clean the corn, season it and wrap it in foil hours before you heat up the grill and most of the work is already done! Leftover corn can be removed from the cob and added to soups, salads or folded into creamy polenta. You can use your own choice of seasonings, although I find lots of cracked black pepper, salt and dried oregano work really well.

Buon Appetito!
