Lavender Roasted Corn On the Cob

Fresh, sweet corn and fresh, pungent herbs from the garden create a summertime side that is as mouthwatering as it is easy to prepare.  Let's turn this summer bounty...

 ...into this tasty dish!

Lavender Herb Roasted Corn

With just a few fresh ingredients and a few simple steps, this delicious side will complement a summer meal in a snap.  If you don't have ready access to fresh herbs, this recipe works well with dried herbs and our dried Organic Culinary Lavender too!


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lavender buds
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ears fresh corn, husks removed

Step 1:

Preheat oven to 425°F or fire up the grill.  Either method works well.  Mix together butter, lavender, parsley, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl until evenly combined.

Step 2:

Spread approximately 1 tablespoon of the herbed butter on each corn cob.  Wrap each individually in aluminum foil.  Place foil-wrapped corn on a baking sheet.

Step 3: 

Bake in the preheated oven or grill until corn is soft.  This usually takes 20 to 25 minutes.  Turn once halfway through cook time.  When the corn is finished cooking, remove the fragrant ears of buttery corn from foil, allow to cool slightly and eat up!
