Oven roasted corn on the cob

I just love corn on the cob in the summer.  What I don't love is preparing it.  Husks and silk everywhere, huge pots of boiling water etc, etc... I'm not opposed to it on the grill but sometimes, I'm just not in the mood for that charred flavor.
When Brian came home from the farmer's market last weekend with some great corn, I was determined to find a better way to prepare it.  I searched the web, and came up with this recipe.
I will never ever prepare corn any other way again.  This was so simple and easy and the corn was out of this world delicious.  The husks and silk slipped off with very little effort from me.  My new go to way to prepare corn.  I'm a happy girl.

Oven roasted corn on the cob


Fresh ears of corn


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Place the corn in the husks directly on the oven rack and roast for 30 minutes or until the corn is soft.  Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack until the corn is cool enough to handle.  Remove the husks and silk, serve immediately.

  1. I'm going to have to try this! (On a day when it's not over 100 degrees and I can justify turning on the oven.) :)
