Sprinkle a little powdered ranch on them along with the butter before wrapping them up for a tasty surprise! :)

Much better than water-logged cobs boiled in water. Do remember to place a baking sheet underneath to catch any butter that may seep through the foil. Thanks for sharing a great technique! :)

Originally rated on 4/5/09 - This recipe made it into my book#266453. I may never boil corn on the cob again. This is a great technique. I loved that the butter was able to melt on the cob inside the foil. No mess! The corn stayed nice and crisp (I was afraid it wouldn't) and flavorful. I did 2 ears of corn for 20 minutes and salted them after unwrapping. Just fabulous, pure and simple! Note: use a cookie sheet to catch butter IF any butter should happen to escape the aluminum foil. ~Made for Spring PAC~
