Grilled Corn on the Cob with Fresh Herb Butter

Ingredients: 
  • 1/4 cup softened Kowalski's Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh herbs of your choice
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly grated lime zest
  • 8 ears Minnesota Grown corn on the cob
  • - freshly ground Kowalski's Sea Salt and Black Peppercorns, to taste
Instructions: 

In a small mixing bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients; refrigerate several hrs. Peel the husks off each ear of corn except for the layer touching the kernels; remove silk and pull remaining husks back up over corn. Soak corn in cold water about 1 hr. before grilling. Grill corn over medium heat, covered, until kernels yield gently to pressure (8-10 min.), turning each ear a quarter turn every 2 min. Carefully remove husks; serve with herb butter and salt.

Good to Know:

  • Corn may also be cooked in a pot of boiling water for about 5-7 min.
  • Corn may also be microwaved in the husk. Cook each ear for 10 min., adding 2 min. of cooking time for each additional ear. Cook up to 4 ears at a time.
