Lazy Smoked Corn

Final

Fall is here! The crunchy leaves and crisp air have taken up their proper residency in New England. Currently, I’ve traded in my beach towels for wooly scarves and hot chocolate is effective immediately.

While we are preparing for our migration to the great indoors, I suggest this dish to give you a wisp of summer. This is a very simple corn recipe that calls for very few ingredients. The real stars here are the corn and the smoked salt. The salt takes away the hassle of the grill but will still give you the delectable, smoky flavor.

Try this at home – feel free to add some other vegetables for fun and color.
