Grilled in the Husk Sweet Corn

Soak ears in cool tap water for 15 – 20 minutes

Remove from water, let drain from tip briefly

Pull silks just from end of ear, but don’t open or unwrap husks

Place ears on grate over medium temperature coals or burner

Rotate 1/2 turn every 3-5 minutes, until husk is evenly light brown

Remove from grill, allow to cool slightly then shuck

Add butter, salt and pepper to taste (all are optional, as home-grown sweet corn doesn’t need much seasoning)
