Grilled Corn on the Cob
Now is the time of the year for those lovely ears of fresh corn! The best way to do corn on the cob is to grill it, so try out this awesome Grilled Corn on the Cob the next time you have some corn ears with the husks still on! This is definitely a street food favourite and in Mexico, and in the United States you see this a lot. Sometimes you see them in Canada too. But I loved how they did them down in Mexico... they were just so awesome, grilled up and then slathered with mayonnaise, and chili, with some lime and pepper. Sometimes they would also shave it off into a cup and serve it with different spices or just plain with butter.
Corn is really good for you as well! Its a great vegetable with lots of vitamins in it, like lutein and zeaxanthin which help you have better vision, and it also has a high level of antioxidants and the antioxidants actually raise when it is cooked, which is very different than other vegetables which tend to lose nutrients when they are cooked, so they are better to eat raw instead of cooked. But it seems that corn might be better for you when it is cooked.
These corn on the cobs are super easy to make, they do take a while, so it's best to start them ahead of time, you have to soak them for a while before they can even go on the grill so that they won't burn of course. Then they take up to 25 minutes to cook as well. So make sure you have lots of time to prepare them properly. But you will not be disappointed, because grilled corn simply just tastes so amazing!
