Summer Love – Basil Corn on the Cob

Who doesn’t love grilled corn on the cob?  I don’t have a grill but I still wanted to do corn on the cob for Memorial Day so I did it in my oven.  It turned out deeeeelish!  Here’s the recipe:

6 large ears of corn

Carefully peel back corn husks to within 1 inch of bottoms: remove silk.  In a small bowl, combine the butter, dried basil, rapadura, salt, and garlic salt; spread over the corn.  Place basil leaves over the butter mixture.  Re-wrap corn in husks.  Place in a stock pot; cover with cold water.  Soak for 20 minutes; drain.

Grill corn in an oven set to broil for 25-30 minutes or until tender (or on a grill over medium heat for the same amount of time) turning often.
