What could be better with a barbecue than fresh succulent corn on the cob" Wrapped in aluminum foil, all the sweet moistness stays inside to make each kernel plump and juicy!!!!
In foilware pan, melt 2 or 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine. Drain one 12 ounce or one pound can of whole kernel corn, and add to butter with 1/4 teaspoon of anise seed. Add a dash of salt and pepper to taste. Heat, stirring often until corn is piping hot.
1 med.-sized or lg. ear per serving, or 2 sm. ears
Remove and discard the dry outer husks of fresh ears of corn, trim excess stalks. Carefully separate and pull down the soft pliant inner husks and remove and discard all the silk. Rub the kernels generously with butter and salt lightly. Pull the husks back, smoothing them in place, and secure the tips with a twist of wire. Place the ears on the edges of the grill while using the center area to prepare the main course. Turn the ears occasionally and allow about 20 to 25 minutes cooking time. Clip the ties away and serve in the shuck.
CORN HUSKS - ALTERNATIVE:
