How To Grill Corn
Large ears of corn are now appearing in our markets and I've been buying and grilling corn just about every week. In the past, we placed corn still in the husks right on the grill. But recently, we discovered how wonderful the corn's flavor is when it's husked and placed directly on the grill. Goodness, you've never tasted better corn! The direct heat from the grill caramelizes the corn and brings out it's sweetness.
I love the slightly charred look of the corn too. Whether or not you grill your corn in the husks is truly a matter of preference. If you do decide to grill your corn stripped bare of the husk, make sure you rub a little oil or butter over it before you place it on the grill and grill it for about 10-15 minutes, rotating the corn every now and then to makes sure it cooks evenly. I like to grill corn in batches and when I have a leftover ear of corn, I love making this corn crostini.
This appetizer is unbelievably simple to throw together and this crostini tastes amazing. Sweet corn and diced tomatoes tossed with a little olive oil and white wine vinegar, and topped with crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil. Fabulous flavors piled high on a toasted baguette. Although grilled corn is my preference, you certainly could use canned corn or frozen and thawed corn as well. This Corn Crostini is a sweet and crunchy appetizer that would be perfect to serve while outside with friends or to bring to a neighborhood block party.
