Roasted Corn on the Cob

I bookmarked a recipe by Tyler Florence for roasting corn on the cob in the oven. I decided to give it a try today while I had corn in my refrigerator and the weather was cold & stormy.  Anyone can make this recipe and it will turn out fantastic – it’s seriously so easy. The kitchen smelled awesome while the corn roasted and it turned out super flavorful and crisp-tender. We dressed the corn with butter, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper and it was perfect. This will be my go-to method for corn from now on.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the corn (still inside the husks) directly onto the oven rack. Roast for 30 minutes. Peel down the husks  then use as a handle when eating (I trimmed mine down a bit). Serve with butter, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Enjoy.

    Sounds delicious! I love roasting summer vegetables even though it requires turning on the oven. Totally worth it.

    I am assuming that you take the silk off before roasting — correct?

      Karen,

      No, you don’t. You pop it right into the oven as is. The silk removes very easily after roasting.

    Pam,
    This is my favorite way to make corn too! No humid kitchen from boiling and absolutely no prep work-just pop in the oven and you are done!!

    What a simple way to make corn! I must try it this way! I bet the corn husk gives it even more corn flavor while it’s roasting.

    Hard to beat fresh corn on the cob slathered with butter – we’ve never tried oven roasting it though.

    There’s no corn on the cob here yet. Our friend Greg sometimes cooks it in the husk on the grill, but prefers it boiled!

    Oh yum. I’ve often grilled corn inside the husks on the barbeque, but I’ve never tried roasting them in the oven. I think I need to give this a try as soon as next summer rolls around.

    while grilled corn is the ultimate food as far as i’m concerned, roasted corn is delicious too. :)
