Grilled Cajun Herb Corn and Herb Butter



Grilled Corn on the Cob is a Must Have Food during the Grilling Seasons if you like Me. See My Cajun Herb Butter Spread Recipe Below**

According to archaeological evidence, corn has been cultivated for at least seven thousand years. And
because it hybridizes so easily, there are more varieties of corn than any other crop species. In 1948,
plant scientists in Florida, the nation's largest fresh sweet corn producer, discovered a "supersweet" corn
gene, producing corn with a higher sugar content that stayed sweet and fresh longer.The corn is perfect for
this salad, and you'll find it in your supermarket now. So, as you're planning for the weekend, remember to
pick up corn, as well as the ingredients for Herb Butter, which will add a gourmet flair to the feast. Herb
butter will keep for up to 1 week in a tightly closed container in the refrigerator.

To grill sweet corn, lightly brush husked ears with butter or oil, such as olive oil. Grill, turning once
or twice, until hot and some kernels turn golden, about 7 minutes. Then after the corn is Done, add one of the Herb or Cajun Herb Spreads on your corn and Mmmm Enjoy

HERB BUTTER

Makes ½ cup
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons snipped fresh chives

Beat the butter in a small bowl with an electric beater until it is light and fluffy. Use a rubber spatula
to fold in the remaining ingredients.
