Campfire Corn on the Cob

Cooking Corn over the campfire

Nothing says summer like corn-on-the-cob, dripping with butter and packed with flavor. This simple recipe can be added to your camping rotation because it is cooked with husks on to save time!


• 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.
