Freshly picked corn cooks very quickly. Older corn, no longer quite as full of sugar, will take a little longer.
Corn In The Coals
- Prep Time
- Cook Time
- (5 /5)
- 1 rating
- 8 Fresh Sage Leaves
- 4 Tablespoons Butter
- Kosher Salt
- Pinch Cayenne, Paprika, Or Other Spicy Ground Chili Pepper
- 1 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
- 4 Ears Corn (Husked)
- Build a fire in a grill and let it burn down to hot coals. Put sage leaves in small-size skillet and toast them over the fire about 3 minutes until they are fragrant. Remove pan from heat. When sage is cool enough to handle, chop or crumble leaves and return to pan. Add butter, a bit of kosher salt and ground chili pepper. Set skillet back on grill and allow butter to melt. Add lime juice to taste.
- Place ears of corn directly on coals. Use tongs to turn them so they brown evenly on all sides, about 2 minutes. Pull corn out of fire. Brush corn with butter and serve.
