Grilled spiced sweet corn



4-6 cobs of sweet corn (husks intact)

½ cup Earth Balance All Natural Spread*

2-3 teaspoons Mudd Creek Butter Spice/Rub*


Pull back husk just enough to remove as much silk as you can beforehand. Replace husk, as this will hold in the moisture and keep the corn from burning. Soak in water for at least 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from water and pull down husks carefully — DO NOT REMOVE — and coat with herbal butter (made from adding your favorite fresh herbs to softened butter). Put the husks back up, covering the corn and tie with a thin piece of husk at the top. Place on grill for about 15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.

*Healthier Variation:

Rub corn with Mudd Creek Cranberry Honey Mustard before grilling for a sweet and savory version.
