Grilled Corn with Dry Grill Rub

An innovative use for our housemade rub!

Ingredients:
4 ears sweet corn, shucked
Olive oil
2 tablespoons Farm & Larder dry grill rub

Method:
1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

2. In a shallow dish, add a very thin layer of olive oil. Roll each ear of corn in oil to lightly coat. Then rub each with about 2 teaspoons of the dry grilling rub, rotating as you do so to make sure rub is evenly distributed.

3. Place corn on grill and cook, rotating occasionally to apply heat to all sides, until sections of the corn are lightly blackened and the kernels are bright yellow. Remove and serve immediately.

Variations: This rub is also wonderful sprinkled over grilled peppers or summer squash.

Grilled Corn Salad with Sweet Peppers

This warm salad is crisp and crunchy, boasting a wonderful smoky flavor from the perfectly-charred corn and peppers.

Ingredients:
4 ears sweet corn, shucked
2 sweet peppers, halved and seeded
2 ½-inch-thick onion slices
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon chopped oregano
1 tablespoon finely-chopped chives
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Place corn on the grill rack; grill 20 minutes or until charred here-and-there, turning occasionally. Place in a large bowl; cover with foil. Leave in a warm location 10 minutes, then cut corn kernels off cobs, encouraging clusters to stay intact, if possible.

2. Meanwhile, place the peppers and onions on grill rack, and grill 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and coarsely chop both the peppers and onions.

3. Combine the chives, cream, oregano, vinegar and garlic with a healthy pinch each of salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add peppers, onions and corn; toss gently to coat. Serve warm.
