Fresh corn ?'s

So if u buy fresh sweet corn at the store, still husked. How long will it stay ok?I bought some 2 days ago intending on tossing on grill this weekend, but ran out of time. I tossed them into the fridge right away when I got home. I just don't want them to spoil before use.

Now how do you guys cook them? I normally soak the while thing, in the husks, I place it all in water for about an hour, and then toss them on the grill at med heat. Then dissasemble them after grilling on grill for about 10-15 minutes. Do u add any butter beforehand or any flavorings? I usually like eating them just cooked with nothing added but always try to look for new tastes

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

It'll be good for at least a week. It will rot from the top down, so you can always peel and cut it down to make it good again.

I take mine out of the husk, boil them for about 5 minutes then toss them on the grill to put that nice brown on it.... far less time than the in'husk way and easier to peel it out ahead of time while it's cold than when it's hot.

butter after and some salt/pepper.

Everyone Exaggerates

I just had some grilled corn today. I put them straight on the grill without soaking or husking. Rotate when the husks turn dark brown-black a few times and then its done. 15-20 mins for me. As a bonus of doing it this way, you can hold on the the peeled back husks when you eat it.

We normally soak them for 30-60 minutes, then grill 2/3 heat until completed.

We cook it until we get some serious color to get the awesome carmelized flavor from the corn syrup.

Peel rinse in hot water to get the strings off.

We finish it with butter, salt, pepper and garlic.

One of our kids FAVORITES. (mine too)

Here's what I do, you can modify the seasonings to fit your taste. I peel back the husk to the base, one leaf at a time. Then I pull out the stringy stuff inside and fold the husk back up. I soak the corn for 30-60 mins and I make my butter. I use soft butter (room temp) and mix in salt, pepper, and a bit of cayenne. I love garlic, so I also mix in garlic that I smashed into a paste with kosher salt. When i'm ready to grill, I fold back the husk again, dry off the actual corn, and rub on the butter/seasoning mix. Don't be shy with the butter. Grill for 20 mins over med-hot coals, turning every 5 min to get all 4 sides. Then, just peel back the husk and enjoy!

All these ways are good, and there are some great ideas now that I am going to try.

When I want quick and delicious, I leave the hust on, remove the silk, and wrap it tightly in tinfoil, making sure it is pretty well sealed. That allows you to cook it about 5 minutes longer without burning. This produces a nice steam effect and exceptional tenderness and flavor. It cooks about 20 minutes, rotating a quarter turn every 4-5 minutes, over charcoal (always gotta be charcoal). I can tell it is done by picking it up and listening, it will have a 'snap crackle and pop" sound. It will also smell delicious.

Bottom line, try many, experiment, have fun. Good luck!

Ok here's my approach, and I've had people go nuts over it, so take that FWIW.

I pull out the hair and then soak in water for 60+ mins (but if I don't have time, I will skip this and it all turns out ok, esp if the corn is fresh). Then I melt butter and dump in a bunch of steak seasoning. We have this homemade stuff that a family friend makes out in west Texas, but it's not vastly different from any other steak rub like Emeril's Essence of McCormick's steak seasoning. Anyway, brush that on the corn and close up the husks. Sometimes I wrap a band of foil around then to secure them.

Grill on indirect (top rack) medium (~350) for 30 mins or so. Timing works great with a THICK steak or bone in chicken.

Same as most, soak for about an hour, grill for 15/20 min, peel and put on corn on the cob holders and place into special trays (this is a little gimmick I picked up at Jewel in the seasonal isle for $1.99 and it works perfect to hold the access butter for reaplication) and serve.

fresh corn doesnt keep long at all mike, it pretty rapidly turns to starch, the colder you can keep it the longer it will keep but youre on a pretty tight window. the fridge isnt terribly cold and will really only give you a couple days before a marked flavor change

yeah def soak them with the husks for about an hour. then when you put them on the grill, they won't burn like hell. the water will help steam 'em up.

then take the husks off when you're ready to eat. tons o' butter. remember. butter is your friend.

I'm prolly in the minority here, but, as a single (& lazy) guy, I find that just boiling works fine. I start a pot of water heating while I clean all the husk and silk off. Then into salted boiling water for a few minutes and then I'm eatin'

I saw some cooking show last week, they actually brined the corn. Strip off all of the husk & silk. Soak in salt & sugar brine for 1 hr. They grilled it on a gas grill, till golden brown.
