Unveiling the Secret to Perfectly Grilled Corn on the Cob
There’s nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a succulent ear of corn on the cob during the summer. And when it’s Blackstone Grilled Corn on the Cob, the experience is taken to a whole new level of deliciousness. Within minutes, you can have an incredible side dish ready for any BBQ or dinner gathering.
Elevating Corn to New Heights
If you thought Air Fryer Roasted Corn was impressive, wait till you try Blackstone Grilled Corn on the Cob. Grilling sweet corn enhances its natural flavors, resulting in a taste sensation like no other. Plus, you can even cut the kernels off and use them in salads or whip up a delectable creamed corn dish. The possibilities are endless.
A Family Tradition
My husband, hailing from the great state of Ohio, has an undying love for corn on the cob. In fact, his mother used to make a fresh batch and even enjoy some for breakfast. The love for this golden vegetable runs deep in our family, and we’re excited to share our grilling secrets with you.
Choosing the Perfect Sweet Corn
When selecting the best corn, it’s important to know what to look for. Here are a few tips:
- Look for bright and plump kernels. If you can’t peel back the husk, gently feel for the plumpness.
- Avoid husks with brown holes, as it indicates the presence of unwanted critters.
- Check the tassels (the stringy part of the corn husk). Black tassels suggest older corn, while light brown is a sign of freshness.
- The husk should be bright green and tightly wrapped around the corn, ensuring its quality.
Mastering the Grilling Process
Grilling corn is a matter of personal preference. Some like to shuck the corn, while others prefer grilling it with the husk on. Let’s explore both methods:
Grilling Corn in the Husk
For corn that hasn’t been shucked, keeping the husk intact provides a unique advantage. It acts as nature’s aluminum foil, ensuring the corn remains tender and juicy. Furthermore, the charred husk imparts a smoky flavor, transforming your corn into a taste sensation.
Grilling Shucked Corn
Should you prefer shucked corn or have already removed the husks, don’t worry! I have the perfect solution for you. Simply wrap each ear of corn in foil before placing it on the grill. This method ensures the corn retains its moisture, guaranteeing a juicy and flavorful outcome.
Infusing Flavor with Buttery Goodness
One of the underappreciated joys of grilling corn is the ability to impart tantalizing flavors through buttery goodness. Here are a few mouthwatering combinations to try:
- Butter, basil, salt, and black pepper.
- Old Bay seasoning and butter.
- Butter, sugar, and ground cinnamon.
Simply rub your preferred butter mixture onto the corn before wrapping it tightly in foil. The result? A symphony of flavors that will leave you craving more.
Unleashing the Potential of Frozen Corn
Got some frozen corn stashed in your freezer? It’s time to put it to good use! Be sure not to overcook it, as most frozen corn is already partially cooked. Wrap the corn in foil with a generous amount of butter and spices, then heat it until it’s warmed through. Keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking and maintain its delightful texture.
Keeping Corn Fresh and Ready
If you’re wondering how to keep corn at its best, whether from the market or farmer’s market, here are a few tips:
- If you plan to grill the corn within a few hours, leave it at room temperature.
- For longer storage, place the corn in the refrigerator with the husks on. Wrap it tightly in a plastic bag to maintain its freshness.
