Grilled corn smothered with butter, mint, garlic, chilli, fresh herbs and lots of lime. Simplicity as its best!
Nothing says summer more than fresh corn or mielies (as they are known in Afrikaans) still snug in their husks and I get very excited at their first appearance in my weekly vegetable boxes.
I am creating recipes for the lovely folks at Neighbourhood Farms, a non-profit growing wonderful things. I am very passionate about supporting small scale farms especially urban farms and can’t wait to cook up a storm using their organically grown produce.
In this recipe, I cooked the corn in salted water before caramelising it on the bbq to add some smokey flavour. You can completely skip this step or fire up the braai (bbq) and add some other lovely things to char! See serving suggestions.
