Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ears corn, husks and silks removed (or use as many as you like that will fit into the pan)
  • 1 quart milk (can use half milk and water)
  • butter, softened
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place the corn into a 13 x 9-inch dish or use a dish large enough to hold the corn and milk.
  2. Pour the milk over the corn.
  3. Allow to sit for minimum 1 hour or even longer turning the cobs in the milk frequently (if you are leaving the corn in the milk longer you will need to refrigerate).
  4. Drain the cobs well on paper towels or clean tea towels (do not rinse the cobs in water).
  5. Brush each cob generously with soft butter, the season with salt and pepper.
  6. Wrap each cob tightly in a piece of foil.
  7. Grill or about 30 minutes on medium-high turning occasionally.
