8 ears


  • 8 ears corn, husk and silk removed

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 ½ tablespoons macadamia nut oil

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon crushed rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ teaspoons pepper

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 8 sheets aluminum foil


  1. Soak husked corn in cold water for 1 to 3 hours.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Drain corn and pat dry.

  3. Stir melted butter and oil together in a bowl. Stir in garlic, rosemary, sage, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper, then stir in Parmesan.

  4. Place each ear in the center of a sheet of foil. Spread each ear with butter mixture, then tightly wrap in foil. Gently puncture the foil a few times to allow excess steam to escape while grilling.

  5. Cook on the preheated grill, turning frequently, until kernels are tender when pierced with a knife, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the grill and check for doneness; if not done, cook for 5 more minutes.
