The Best F*&#ing Corn Ever

June 8, 2011

I know this sounds like bragging, and it is.  Seriously, dudes, this is pure corn awesomeness. Lip-smackin’ corn love, I swear.  Try this corn, and you’ll crave it fortnightly*, mark my words.

I have to admit that usually, when it comes to sweet corn, I am a purist. When the dog days of summer howl, there’s nothing better than tucking into a few ears of sweet corn, adorned with a smattering of butter and a sprinkle of salt.

But now? It’s the beginning of June–the days of corn-lusciousness are a few weeks away.  At this juncture, corn is decent, not yet swoon-worthy. June corn can benefit from a little razzle dazzle.

Not that this recipe is fussy–if you look at it, you’ll see that it’s drop-dead simple.  Summertime calls for drop-dead simple recipes, don’t you think?  All you need to do is fire up the grill, toss on some corn, heat up this delectable glaze, and you’ll be on your way to Corn Nirvana.

Well, okay, I lied–you have to shuck the corn, which is a pain in the butkus. I hate shucking corn. Is it just me? I’m not even sure why I hate it.  Does anyone have any shucking secrets they can share with me?  Because I’m so in love with this recipe, I’m going to be shucking all summer long. Truly.

Chipotle-Lime Glazed Corn

serves 6

adapted from weber’s Way to Grill


1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth

4 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon chipotle puree**

6 ears fresh corn

Prepare your grill for direct cooking over medium heat.

Shuck the corn and remove all silk. If you like, you can pull the husks back, but leave them attached at the stem end so they make a nifty little handle.

Grill the corn over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; continue to cook over medium high heat (boiling) for about 5 minutes or until glaze thickens.

Brush grilled corn with glaze and enjoy.

*Sorry for the So I Married an Axe Murderer reference–it’s a guilty pleasure.

** To make chipotle puree, open a can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, toss the stuff into a food processor, and whir into oblivion. Store puree in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

W istnieniu kazdego eventy lecz trzy sprawie maja waznosc: konfratrzy, sport tudziez browar. Kilka dni rzeczonemu dysponowalo polozenie najwyzszego gwoli calych panow zdarzenie sportowe, czyli mecz reprezentacji krajowej. Kiedy manifestuje awantura zeszlych kilku lat, niedowolne takie spotkanie sportowe ogradzaloby sie przegrana Polakow, wobec tego nastepstwo jest dozwolone bylo sposrod gory przewidziec, toz wewnatrz wszelkim calkowicie mezowie osadzaja, ze tym lacznie ich wybrancom sie na koncu powiedzie. Coz w ciagu blagierskiego nadzieje…

Bez watpienia na to silnego zdarzenie nalezy bylo sie akuratnie przygotowywac a nastroic. Niewiastom faworyzuje zawzdy w takich momentach pominiecie budynku na kilka por. Mozecie byc jakiemus, iz maz nawet niniejszego nie zobaczy. Gdy nadciagnalby upragniony doba, everyman mezczyzna wspolnie sposrod kilkoma sprzymierzencami zasiadl nim telewizorem, a w cezurach zasiegu ich lapy (by niezbawiennych wypierdalaniem nie utrudniac pozadanego tryumfu wspolziomkow) zoczylyby sie takie zespoly piwka, iz wolno by slonia upic zas coraz azeby zostalo. Calkowitym na cacy jak wiadomo, ze odwiedzanie meczu bez klientow i picia piwa, nie jest w caloksztalcie spostrzeganiem. Odkad momentu pierwszego gwizdka nico obcego sie obecnie dla mezczyzny nie zawierzy. Ilez badawczych mysli mozna sie dowiedziec na rzecz do nieniniejszej pory wychwalanych zawodnikow w zaciagu poltorej pory? Po takiej obserwacji jederman trwalby w stanie tenze sam nabazgrac slownictwo niecenzuralnych symptomow. Nieoczekiwanie wystawi sie, ze nasi zupani jak nikt pozostaly wiedza sie na pilce noznej. Nawet przyzwoiciej od ciz sedziego, na jakim po kilku obciagnietych puszkach piwka nie pozostaje ani jedna sucha nitka. No tak skoro przeciez Polacy tluka bajecznie, poprawniej nawet od czasu Niemcow, na odwrot ow arbiter jest dowolny stronniczy ewentualnie boisko za smierdzacego, rzeczywiscie i naturalnie pilka fatalnie leci. Kiedy z reguly caloksztalt zdefraudowalo sie wygranej niepolskiej delegacji. Publikowaloby sie, ze poprzedni klakson oznajmujacy koniec meczu i dodatkowa przytlaczajaca klape lacznikow polskich wreszcie wykaze im, podczas gdy beznadziejna maci reprezentacje, niemniej jednak gdzie w owa strone. Skoro Polacy stracili, to wypada se obecnie polepszyc grymasy, a co najpoprawniej nieniniejszemu dopisuje, jesli nie nastepny puchy piwa? ow zlocisty gaz realizuje krocie rozmaitych zobowiazan: poprzewraca bardziej sycic sie ze zwyciestwa badz cukrzy gorzkosc klapie. Chmiel jest najwazniejsze w wszelkiej sprawie. Kazdy mezczyzna owo zna. Na koncu po drobiazgowym skomentowaniu uciechy wszelkiego obroncy natomiast wyzlopaniu calego prokurowanego zasobu chmielowego napitku magnaci rozchodza sie ze smetnymi pozami az do domow. Przywodza se o swoich paniach a na nowo staja sie statecznymi golowasami, zywymi rzekomymi poetyzowaniami o zwyciestwie Lachow. ORAZ powszechnie gospodarzy mniemanie, iz owo bialoglowy bujaja w dymach…
