Child-approved Corn Grilled in Its Shuck

It's summer, and that means it's time to fire up the old grill. Thrifty Mommy is hosting this week's Carnival of the Recipes, and the theme is "grilled food." I thought you might like this recipe for grilling corn. All three of my girls love this version, and it is quite simple to make.

Corn Grilled in Its Shuck

You need one ear of corn per person. Rinse off the corn, leaving the shuck on. Throw on a preheated grill and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes, or as needed to make sure the kernels are tender. Remove from grill and strip off the shuck and corn silk. Serve with salt, butter, or whatever seasoning you desire. (In Mexico, vendors cover the corn with mayonnaise and chili powder. That may sound strange, but it's absolutely delicious.)

I have posted two other recipes that, grilled together with this one, will create a full meal.

Grilled Seasoned Potatoes - posted at The Porch Light

If you have a favorite grill recipe, why don't you participate in the Carnival of the Recipes? Submission is easy, and the deadline is noon on Saturday.
