FRESH GRILLED CORN ON THE COB                        Basic


To cook corn in husks, peel them back from the ears but leave them attached at the stem end.  Tear a Ĺ inch wide strip from one of the husks to use as a tie. 


Remove as much of the silk as possible with your hands and a damp paper towel.  If desired, the corn may be buttered an seasoned to taste at this point. 


Pull the husks back over the kernels; tie at the top with the reserved strip of husk.  Immerse in cold water 30 minutes.  Drain corn; itís ready to grill, roast or steam.


Grill over hot coals, turning often; cook in a 475-degree oven for 20-25 minutes; or steam on rack for 15 - 18 minutes.  Use knife to remove the kernels.
