Corn! Summer brings heaps and heaps of corn. Great big bins of corn greet you at the entry way to the supermarket. Sometimes they are placed outside the store. Always with a supporting bin to collect the discarded corn husks. Corn reminds us all of summer, picnics, hiking, camping and backyard barbecue.
One of the most popular way corn is eaten is right off of the cob. This could be roasted on the grill or on the stove top. But if you like it really moist and creamy then do what I did. Let the oven do the job while you read a book.
You will need
1 corn on the cob with the husk
Preheat oven to 350 F. While the oven heats rinse the corn with the husk and drain but do not dry it out. Put the wet corn with the husk on the middle rack of the oven. Let it cook for 30 minutes. You can place as many cobs as your oven rack will allow.
Take the corn out of the oven. Remove the husk and silk. The corn kernels will be soft and creamy. Slather with butter and enjoy!
You could enhance the taste by flavoring the butter. Add paprika, cumin powder, dried oregano and salt. Or you could add minced dried basil. Or instead of the butter add lemon juice flavored with salt and cayenne pepper. You cannot go wrong.
