Wrap your corn in foil and cook it in the campfire’s heat for a sweet and salty summer side
Campfire Corn


Not much tastes better than sweet summer corn that has been cooked with butter over the campfire.

This recipe is courtesy of Tasty Kitchen.


  • 2 ears of corn
  • Sugar, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 Tablespoons butter


Shuck the corn and remove the silk. Rinse it in cold water.

Cut 2 squares of tinfoil just longer than the ears of corn on each side, and place the corn on the foil. Sprinkle on sugar, salt, and pepper to taste. Thinly slice the butter into 8 equal parts, and place 4 on each ear of corn.

Tightly roll up the foil around the corn, and make sure the ends are twisted shut. Cook over white hot campfire coals for about 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the fire, unwrap, and eat immediately.
