Grilled Corn on the Cob

Happy 4th of July!  The area of Seattle we are in at the moment did their local fireworks last night which we opted not to attend.  We really weren't sure how our 6 month old puppy would react to them which was a big part of why we didn't go.  We spent the day exploring the area of Poulsbo which has a very quaint downtown area on the water where we had a lovely lunch overlooking the bay.  We did come home to cook dinner and this wonderful corn was a part of it.

Grilled Corn on the Cob
Makes 2 servings

2 ears fresh corn
Butter, optional
Sea salt, optional

Fill a sink or a large bowl with water and place ears of corn in with husks on.  Let soak for 30 to 60 minutes.  Meanwhile preheat a grill to medium-high heat.  Remove corn from water and grill for about 20 minutes, turning corn every 5 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly and remove husk and any stray silk.  Serve with butter and sea salt if desired. 

I like my grilled corn as is since it is always tender and slightly smoky from the grill.
