Notes

*NOTE: Did you know you can roast corn in the oven or microwave husk and all? Yep! Just toss it in the oven, 350 for 1 hour or 400 for 45 minutes, or 4 minutes on high in the microwave. At the end of cooking time remove corn with a potholder and place on cutting board. At the bottom end, about one inch up, where corn cob is the widest, cut end off with a large knife. Grab the other end of the cob by the husk and gently shake and squeeze and the corn will slide right out, free of silk and cooked to perfection!
