- Fresh corn in husks
Pick fresh corn or purchase corn still in the husks. Pull back the husks without tearing them off. Pull out all of the silks or gently scrub at the kernels to get the silks out. Pull the husks back up over the ear to completely encase it. Soak the ears in a bucket of salt water overnight (add about 1/4 cup of salt to a bucket of water). Take the ears directly from the bucket and put them on the grill to cook. To eat, just pull back the husks and use them for a handle, butter the corn, and enjoy.
