Grilled Corn 5 Ways

The one good thing about an Arizona Summer is the seasonal produce that comes with it! Yes, things still grow in our incredible heat - sweet corn being one of them.  We love our local, non-GMO sweet corn and think it pairs deliciously well with our olive oils.

With Summer right around the corner, we thought it would be fun to share our ways to grill sweet corn with you all! There is nothing like a tasty corn on the cob to get the Summer grillin' party started!

The method is essentially the same for each way. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the shucked corn and boil for seven minutes; remove. Grill corn until lightly charred then baste with any of the following to create a simple and tasty addition to your summer BBQ...
