Corn on the cob is one of life's simple joys. Roasting in the oven removes the hassle of setting up the outdoor grill, and has the added benefit of perfuming your kitchen with the rich smell of roasting corn. We like to keep the husks on for the majority of the cook time, sealing in the flavour and keeping the kernels tender.
- 4 ears of corn
- quarter stick of butter
- 2 tablespoons Gustus Vitae Condiments' Red Cayenne Salt
- Preheat over to 370ºF.
- Place unhusked corn directly on baking racks. Cook for 34 minutes.
- Remove corn from oven and carefully peel husks.
- Place husked corn back in oven and cook for 2 further minutes - this will give the corn a slight charring and more flavour.
- Remove from oven, slice butter in 4 pats and allow to melt on corn. Sprinkle with red cayenne salt, and serve immediately.
