Corn grilled in the husk is one of the best summer eats. I simply love corn. Ron grew up eating fresh corn his grandfather grew, but his mom never grilled it. Making it outside and not in a pot of boiling water inside is something we really enjoy doing together. We even did it at our wedding garden party we had in California after we got married in the Caribbean. We still grill it every chance we get.
As you may know, I am not a huge fan of butter. However, I surrendered to temptation and came up with Reel Chow Summer Corn Spread—a summer treat that’s delicious and very easy to make. I combined fresh basil, unsalted butter, coconut cream, paprika, mustard powder, and fresh lemon zest in my mini-food processor. No salt or pepper added.
