Can I just be honest with anyone who reads this blog? I have been in a serious cooking funk for like 3 months. We didn't eat microwave dinners, but I just didn't want to be in the kitchen. Now that spring has sprung and farmer's markets are in full force, I'm back on track and in the kitchen.
This recipe is a variation from Green Bean Delivery. Corn is a pretty big deal around Indiana and it is a perfect side dish especially if you like kernels in your teeth.
Soak the corn for an hour in cold water. Drain.
Preheat grill to medium. Grill the corn, turning frequently, for 15 to 20 minutes. The husks will turn pale and start to brown. As the corn steams, the kernels will turn bright and glossy. Remove from grill and completely remove the husks.
Melt butter onto a plate and roll the ears of corn in the butter. Place the corn on a serving tray and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the herbs over the corn and garnish with freshly grated cheese.
I hope to be around the blog a little more in the next few months. I'm in the market for some new pots and pans. Any suggestions? What does everyone else use? I've had mine since college and I know nothing about what to look for.
