It’s corn season, and few things taste better this time of year than a fresh ear of corn. There are all different ways to make corn on the cob. Food editor Cloris McWerther grills hers, and I’ve never had any that was tastier. Here’s how she does it. -- AP

Thanks, Anastasia! This is so simple that it’s hardly a recipe. All you need to do is husk the corn, making sure you remove all the silk. Wash the cobs in cold water, then pat dry. Brush each cob with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and place on the grill. Be sure to keep an eye on the corn, turning the cobs as they brown. The corn will carmelize as it browns, bringing out the sweetness.

Thanks, Cloris! Yum! Wish I had some right now. Readers, how do you cook your corn on the cob? Let’s hear from you. -- AP
