Grilled Corn

There’s more than one way to cook fresh, Ohio sweet corn but the first rule is cook it the day it’s picked when it is at its best in terms of flavor and texture. Steaming, boiling or microwaving are easy ways to finish tender ears to perfection, but if the grill is heated up, consider tossing the ears on the fire and enjoying the smoky flavor that this method delivers. Make a few ears or a bunch for a crowd.

Leaving the husks and silks intact, submerge the desired number of ears of corn in water, using a bucket or sink. Soak for at least two hours, or up to six. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium high. Place the corn in a single row on the grill grate. Cook with the lid lowered for 15 to 20 minutes, turning every five minutes until lightly browned on all sides. To test for doneness, peel back the husk on one.
