    Rita~'s Note:

    Check out my herbed butter Mixed-Herb Compound Butter for Veggies or Meat or Roasted Garlic, Herb Butter to brush on the corn. Prep time includes soaking time which is done in ice water to keep the sugars in the fresh corn from turning into starch.

      I do my corn the same way. There is one little tweak that I have found and that is to brush the corn generously with butter after the corn has soaked. Then put the husks back up and tie. Put them on the grill and the butter really helps the flavor. Nothing like grilled corn on the cob on a summer night in Iowa!

      We grill corn like this and love it! There is no other way in our house! The only difference is that we do not remove the silk and we sometimes soak it longer in regular tab water. This way, we put it in the water before company comes and it is ready when it is time to grill. The silk easily comes off after it is grilled. If there is any left over, I put it in the fridge and later microwave it until it is warm. It still tastes fresh!
