Summer is about the grill. I seem to grill everything from meat to vegetables – even fruit – but one of my family favorites is corn!
Nothing says summer like sweet corn on the cob, slathered with butter and tons of salt (and in my case, herb butter). Specifically, I love thyme butter. Since I have lots of herbs in my garden, I use them all summer long to infuse in everything from salads to ice cream and butter? Why not?
Here’s the perfect recipe to dress up your grilled corn on the cob.
Grilled Corn with Thyme Butter
6 ears sweet summer corn, 8 teaspoons softened butter, 3 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon salt
- Shuck corn leaving husks on the end. *You can soak the corn in water for a ½ hour to retain moisture while grilling.
- Place on the grill turning frequently for 20 minutes or until corn is nicely caramelized. *I like to brush the corn with thyme butter while it’s cooking on the grill.
- Prepare butter.
- Mix butter, thyme, and salt in a bowl until thoroughly combined, set aside to use on the corn. *This can be made ahead of time.
I love to make this with my flank steak. Check out my “Wo-Manning the Grill” post and video about how to make my tasty flank steak recipe.
Have a happy summer with sweet corn on the cob!
