Corn on the cob is a summertime staple-what would cookouts be without it? Summer nights are meant for campfires and quick food! Easy dishes, like chicken, seasonal vegetables, s’mores, this grilled corn on the cob take the stress out of planning get togethers-just toss them on the grill and go. Thanks to the addition of our Eastern Shore Honey, this corn is sweet and flavorful, just like it’s supposed to be.
Growing up, my family always made summer trips to the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. Here, we’d have huge cookouts, with all sorts of grilled and fried chicken, fish, and veggies. Something that always showed up was a few ears of grilled corn, husks charred black by the heat of the grill. I wasn’t a fan of it when I was small (the husk made it hard to eat, and it seemed to take too long to cool down for my little hands to hold), but I’ve grown to appreciate it. Topped with a rich honey butter blend, this corn is sweet and smoky, and compliments our Honey Grilled Chicken and fresh fruit.
If you don’t have a grill, you can make this corn in your backyard campfire! Allow your fire to burn down to ashy embers (or, start a small fire before your cookout for this process) and simply lay the ears on top. Turn with a fire prod every few minutes, and you’ll soon have coal roasted ears of corn!
For Even Better Grilled Corn
We always encourage you to play with our recipes and make them your own. This recipe is super simple and leaves lots of wiggle room for experimenting, so have some fun! We recommend:
Swap out the mixed herbs for cilantro, dill, or chives
- Add some heat with chili powder
- Omit the herbs and use a dash of cinnamon for something sweeter
