Grilled Corn

Love corn, try this the next time you are grilling!
What You Need
8 ears fresh sweet corn, remove the silk but keep the husks attached.

Cold water, as needed

1/2 cup sour cream

3 tablespoons butter, melted

Juice of 1 lime

2 tablespoons whole milk

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

(optional sprinkle with chili powder)

Pull the husks up to cover the ears of corn, and place the corn in a large bowl or pot. Cover the corn with cold water, and place a large plate or other weight on top of the corn so that it remains submerged.

Allow the corn to soak for at least 1 hour or as long as 4 hours.

Gombine the sour cream, melted butter, lime juice, milk, salt, and pepper,  in a small bowl, and set it aside.

Preheat a grill to medium-high. Put the rack  about 4-inches away from the coals.

Remove the corn from the water but do not remove the husks. Lay the corn on the grill and cook, turning it frequently, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the corn from the grill and allow it to cool slightly.

Pull the husks back to form a handle, and brush the ears evenly with the sour cream mixture. Roll the ear of corn in the cheese, coating it on all sides. Serve immediately.
