I saw a very similar recipe on the Food Network, and decided to give it a try. It came out moist, sweet and delicious, but it did take over half an hour to get done. I didn't mind that though cause it gave me time to prepare the rest of the meal without a rush. Thank you.

I didn't have time to soak the ears of corn, but I did pour some olive oil over them and some salt and pepper prior to baking. It was great. My son said that is the best way he has had corn. I tend to agree.
