This corn can be roasted on the grill or in the oven. Don't tear off the husks; just pull them back enough so you can tear off the silks.


  • Fresh corn, 1 ear per person
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper



Pull back (but don't tear off) the husks and remove the silk. Rub each ear of corn with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Rewrap the corn in their husks and soak in cold water for 10 min. Put the corn on a hot grill, turning occasionally until the husks are brown.


Remove the husks and silk, rub with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put the corn directly on the middle shelf of an oven set at 400 degrees F. Roast for 15 minutes, turning occasionally.
