With all the excitement for fall, there is still so much to be said for summer. Even with the talk about pumpkin spice and sweaters the heat continues to blaze on here. Maybe it’s the idea of cooler months and a relief from the heat that has us excited for the next season. Here in California, we are smack down in the middle of the summer season. The veggies are still coming out of the garden. I sadly didn’t opt to grow corn in our garden this year. However, we are lucky enough to have several great farmers in the area. So thankfully, good corn is everywhere at the moment.

Sweet corn is a highlight of the summer to be sure and truth be told, it is perfectly delicious on it’s own. But roasting it, adding some butter and fresh basil sends it over the top. It no longer is just an ear of corn placed on the table but rather a side dish packed with flavor with a lovely presentation.

What You Will Need To Make Roasted Sweet Corn with Basil

4 ears of corn

olive oil

3 tbsp (8g) fresh basil

1 tsp (6g) sea salt

3 tbsp (43g) salted butter

Directions

Peel corn and brush them lightly with olive oil.

Place them directly on grill and cook over a medium flame for several minutes making sure to move them around to cook evenly.

Once they are cooked with a bit of charring remove them from the grill. Allow them to cool before cutting.

When cooled, take a knife and run it down each ear of corn over a plate to remove the corn from the husk.

Chop the basil and add it to the bowl leaving out just a few leaves for garnish.
