One of my favorite things in the summer is corn on the cob, I am always looking for new ways to cook it and this one is tasty!

Ingredients

  • 6 large ears sweet corn in husks
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Dash salt
  • Dash garlic salt
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • Lime wedges

Directions

  • Carefully peel back corn husks to within 1 in. of bottoms; remove silk. In a small bowl, combine the butter, dried basil, sugar, salt and garlic salt; spread over corn. Place basil leaves over butter mixture. Rewrap corn in husks and secure with kitchen string. Place in a stockpot; cover with cold water. Soak for 20 minutes; drain.
  • Grill corn, covered, over medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until tender, turning often. Serve with lime wedges. Yield: 6 servings.
