Roasting corn on the grill adds a nice depth of flavor to your salsa

Instructions:

1. Roast your corn:

Grill method: Soak your corn in water (completely submerged) for 15 minutes. In the mean time heat your grill to 350 degrees F.  Remove corn from the water and shake off any excess water. Place on the grill until outside husk is charred.  Remove from heat, husk the corn, and return to grill for an additional 2-3 minutes until grill marks appear on all sides. Remove and let cool until able to be handled.

Oven method: preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place corn, husk still attached on the middle rack.  Roast in oven for approximately 30 minutes.  Remove and let cool until able to be handled.
