Campfire Corn on the Cob

Campfire Corn on the Cob


  • corn on the cob (do not husk)
  • water
  • 1/2 - 1  c  sugar (optional)
  • 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.
