Grilled Corn

Corn is a summertime staple! When the days start to get warm everyone gets excited for fresh corn on the cob. Corn is full of vitamins and nutrients. And with its sweet fresh flavor, little ones are bound to eat it by the earful. There are many different ways to cook this delicious veggie, but grilling is one of my all time favorites! Check out how I grill my corn below.

The first step is to husk the corn. Tug off the husks (the green leaves covering the corn) and the silks (the white strings) until the ear is completely naked. Toss all the scraps in the compost!
Be sure to now rinse the corn off, as dirt and debris can get tucked under the husks. Remove the ends of the corn if they are lacking kernels.

Using tin foil, I place one ear of corn with a pad of organic butter and half a clove of minced garlic. I then roll the corn, with its butter and garlic, up tight with the tin foil and place on the grill. Grill for fifteen minutes on medium heat, turning every five minutes.

Unroll the corn and allow to cool. Now, once you reach this step you have many different options when it comes to serving little ones. If you child or toddler is skilled at eating corn straight off the cob, you have reached your final destination! You can also take a knife and cut the kernels off into a bowl (as shown above) and feed your little one this way. And for infants, you can take those kernels and mix them into a puree! You can puree them by themselves or with other fruits and veggies. Mix and match to see what flavor combinations your little one likes best!

So next time you are cooking corn on the cob for the adults, be sure to throw a few ears on the grill for the little ones as well.
