Fresh sweet corn is so good, all it needs is a simple basil and lime compound butter to set it off just right.

Ingredients

Don’t remove the inner husks from the corn before cooking. They steam the kernels, making them extra plump and sweet.

Instructions

Preheat grill to high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Chop basil and garlic in a food processor for the compound butter. Add butter, lime juice, salt, and sugar; process just until smooth. Transfer butter to a container and refrigerate.

Prepare the corn, removing the thick, dark outer husks. Peel back the lighter inner husks but don’t remove them. Discard the silk, fold the husks over to cover corn, and tie husks closed with butcher’s twine.

Grill corn, covered, about 20 minutes, rotating a quarter turn every 5 minutes. To serve, peel back husks and remove ears of corn.

Spread corn with compound butter and serve.

Using a food processor makes this job quick, but mixing by hand is also easy.
