Kathy's Herbed Corn Recipe

My husband and I agreed that the original recipe for this corn needed a little jazzing up, so I added the thyme and cayenne pepper to suit our tastes. Now fresh summer corn makes a regular appearance on our grill. —Kathy VonKorff, North College Hill, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 ears sweet corn, husked

"The first time I made this, it was great! I only used a pinch of cayenne. The second time, I had run out of dried thyme and used GROUND thyme and 1/2 tsp cayenne. It overpowered and was bitter. Will go back to my first attempt with dried thyme when I will definitely make again. It cooks well in oven too."

"We love corn on the grill. This was very tasty but a bit to spicy for us. We substituted smoke paprika for the cayenne pepper and it was perfect!!"
