Grilled corn on the cob

 Its the beginning of April and we're grilling.  It feels like summer.  All week I was thinking if only corn were in season.....sigh but its way too early.

 Well, Chef and I went out exploring.  We were looking for a buthcer for great quality meats to grill.  We found The Butchery, which gave us the best Delmonico steaks.  But next door we found this little market.  Oh what a fabulous market!  Harkens Market has the best looking produce and prices outside of a farmers market.  While looking around, we found corn on the cob!  They were small, but still good.  So we decided to get some and grill.  It seemed like summer..can't wait for more! 

Below is my grilled corn on the cob recipe.

6-8 ears of corn
1-2 tbsp salt
water (enough to cover corn)

Fill large container with cold water.  add salt.  Pull back husks of corn, but do not remove! Remove silks on corn cobs. Pull up husks to cover corn and place in water.  Add more cold water if needed to cover ears of corn.  Soak for 30 minutes.

While corn is soaking prepare heat grill. 

After 30 minutes drain corn on paper towels to remove excess water.  Place on grill.  Grill for 20 minutes, turning corn every 5 minutes.

Enjoy with butter and salt if needed.  I like to make a garlic butter.
