This is an oldy but a goody. The trick is getting the campfire setup with hot coals and then leaving the corn in long enough to soften the corn without burning it.
Campfire Corn On The Cob
- 8 Corn on the Cob (do not husk)
- 1 stick Butter
- Salt optional
Mix water and sugar in a clean bucket, cooler or large pan (add enough water to cover corn).
Add the corn to the water mixture and soak for one-two hours.
Remove corn from water and place on campfire or grill, turn often to avoid over burning of the husk, cook for approximately 20-30 minutes or until tender, remove corn from fire.
Peel back husk and silk, spread with butter and/or salt. Now your ready to eat the sweet, delicious, steaming hot corn.
