Iowan corn is so naturally sweet and flavorful, it needs little attention to become a staple side at nearly every gathering. This recipe, true to form, calls for the cobs to be simply grilled and then brushed with salted garlic butter.

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh sweet corn on the cob, husks and silk removed
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Directions

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Put the shucked corn on the grill and grill until all sides are golden and some kernels are slightly charred, about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. 

In a small pot, combine the butter, salt and garlic. Bring to a simmer and remove from the heat. Brush the garlic butter over the grilled corn.
