Support Your Local Farmer

This is the time of year to support your local farmers by visiting a farmer’s market. During the last week, I have been to several markets – the produce including the sweet corn have been excellent. I love to grill farm fresh sweet corn. Here is my fool proof grilling technique.

Heat your grill as hot as it can get.
Soak the corn – husks and all in water for at least a half hour or longer.
Put the corn on the grill and close the grill for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, turn the corn over. Close the grill and wait another 5 minutes.

After a total of 10 minutes on the grill, put the corn in an insulated cooler. Close the cooler and wait another 5 minutes. The time in the cooler steams the corn and keeps it hot. Take the corn out of the cooler as you need it and enjoy.
