Originally called Decoration Day, from the early tradition of decorating graves with flowers, wreaths and flags, Memorial Day is a day for remembrance of those who have died in service to our country. In an effort, though, to remember the importance of this holiday, people are asked to observe a national moment of remembrance at 3 p.m. and fly flags at half-staff until noon. Then, you can get to another Memorial Day tradition, getting together with family and friends for a barbecue.
Memorial Day is one of the three most popular days for grilling out. Here is a recipe that you will make your Memorial BBQ a winner!!
Crack Corn (grown in the Glades!!)
6 ears corn, husked
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 c. melted butter
Lime wedges, for squeezing
Heat grill to high. Oil grates and add corn. Grill, turning, 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl add brown sugar, cayenne, salt, pepper and butter. Whisk together until combined.
