Every time I eat corn on the cob I struggle with the whole soft butter on hot corn thing...how do you get it to stick? how do you keep it from getting all over your face? This recipe is the answer. No need to add anything after it's cooked. It's just perfect. Thanks for sharing. Made for Gardening Forum Herb/Spice of the Month June 2009.

Obviously, I have had corn and butter before but there was just something so lovely about the addition of the garlic. I think I am going to do that most of the time from now on. I also couldn't get corn with the husks (corn on the cob is actually fairly exotic here in the UK) and I did it in the oven. The only other change was to use reduced fat margarine and it still worked great. Thanks! Made for Oz/NZ tag.

We couldn't buy the corn in the husks (the supermarket had the bright idea of trimming it!) but the flavour of this corn was amazing! So sweet and juicy! i broke each cob in half before I seasoned and wrapped it, and we took it along to the beach for our Australia Day BBQ. It was a hit with the adults and kids alike. Next time, I'm going to sprinkle the adult corn with cayenne pepper fr some kick! We'll have this at all our BBQs now, thanks for posting!
