GRILLED MEXICAN CORN
This is one of our family’s favorites. Whenever you have the grill hot and corn handy—do try this version of corn on the cob. The Mexicans like this with mayonnaise!
4 ears fresh corn, shucked
1 Tablespoon olive oil or enough for a very light brushing of oil
1 fresh lime, cut in wedges
1 Tablespoon crushed caribe chile
1. Lightly brush each ear of corn with olive oil. Then place on a grill rack over hot coals and cook, turning frequently. The ears should cook until all the kernels are lightly tanned on some of the edges. Do not over grill and dry out the corn.
2. The milk in the corn should be set when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. When done, serve each ear with 2 wedges of lime and serve the chile in a small bowl to be passed. To eat, squeeze lime juice over each ear and sprinkle with crushed chile to taste. Serve hot.
Note: Any leftovers can be used in salads, salsas such as the Peach and Grilled Corn in the Picnic story, succotash or other vegetable dishes. Freezes well in vapor proof packaging for up to 90 days.
