Troop 78 Colton, New York

Here are a few other recipes great for camping or at home.

Grilled Corn on the Cob
6 Ears corn on the cob unhusked
Bucket of water
Salt and Pepper
Leave the husks on the corn and place them in the bucket of water.  Leave in the water for a minimum of one half hour, making sure to turn them around once or twice to make sure that all leaves absorb some water.  Take the corn out of the bucket, still leaving the husks on, and place on a cooking grate in a grill or over a fire.  Allow to cook, turning occasionally to ensure they are evenly done.  Cook for approximately 15 minutes, or until it "smells done".  Remove from grill, husk the corn, bath in butter and salt, devour. 
* You can also place the ears of corn directly onto coals, but be sure that they are well soaked!
