Whether you use this method because it’s an easy, no-fuss method of roasting corn or because you want to free up space on your grill or stove-top, you won’t end up with a more perfect ear of corn cooked any other way. The recipe doesn’t indicate this, but since you’re directed to bake the corn for an hour, and since corn is generally soaked in its husks, I assumed the husks were meant to be left on. Two ears fit perfectly in a 2-quart beverage pitcher. This corn was, in a word, simply excellent - sweet, juicy, delightfully “seasoned” because of the salt/sugar brine. Time and temperature were both spot on. Hubs and I couldn’t stop commenting all through dinner on how good this was!

Make sure and leave the CORN IN THE HUSK when you brine it.

This recipe caught my eye. I’m used to making corn on the grill, and an oven recipe, especially one that cooked the corn for an hour, was intriguing. We started with fresh, Wisconsin sweet corn. Leaving the husks on, we followed the directions exactly and the corn turned out sweet, tender and delicious. It’s something I never would have thought of doing and is something I will definitely do again. It’s absolutely a wonderful and different way to enjoy sweet corn.
