Corn on the Cob FAQs
Do you have to soak corn before you grill it?
No, soaking corn is not necessary. If you want to make corn on the cob in the husks, then it is a good idea to soak the corn so the husks do not burn when cooking. In my opinion, cooking in the husks looks pretty but very messy. Some people say the kernels are plumper after soaking, I find no difference, just another pot to wash!
How long can corn on the cob be kept in the fridge before cooking?
Corn can keep about 2-3 days in the fridge before cooking.
How do you grill corn on the cob without?
The smoky flavor of grilling corn is not as apparent as when grilling corn on the cob without foil. However, if you grill corn in foil, season corn with salt, pepper and add a little lime juice. Wrap the corn in the foil and grill over medium heat for about 15 minutes, turning frequently.
Does unshucked corn need to be kept in the fridge?
Yes. Keep the corn in the fridge until ready to cook.
Can I freeze uncooked corn on the cob?
Uncooked corn can be frozen. Place in a freezer safe bag in the freezer for about 3 months.
What's the benefit of grilling corn on the cob without the foil?
In my opinion, this is the easiest method to grill corn on the cob. Why mess with simplicity. Remove the husks and silks. Cooking the corn over a medium heat gives the corn a great char and smoky flavor. The corn juice caramelizes to add great flavor. My family's favorite way, simple and easy.
