Before I would husk corn and wrap it in aluminum foil, I would peel the husk, butter it, and then close it back up using string if I had to, but that's just me. I think along those lines
Corn husk. Nature's aluminum foil.

Go "green", AC.

I have the tacky corn cob holders, with the tacky corn cob dishes to match LOL. Only butter, nothing else. And tons of butter at that, smothered in butter, dripping butter everywhere, no wonder I am having cholesterol problems amounts of butter on it.
You get the idea, LOL.

I have the corn holders - my grand kids love them!! I'm a butter salt & pepper & we roll our corn on the butter - if there's enough of us. Otherwise, I don't allow it.

Can we roll?? is what my kids used to ask. Memories.

When I could eat corn actually on the cob, I loved the tacky cob holders. I miss being able to eat corn from the cob. Stupid bad teeth.

I got the dishes to go with the holders as they do an excellent job of holding all the butter that drips off so I can pour it back on between bites, LOL.

I like to butter a piece of bread and roll the corn in it. That makes it easy to salt, also. Just salt it as you roll it around in that piece of bread you have in your hand.

Oh...eat the bread when you're finished.

I use "I can't believe it's not butter" and mix in Lawry's seasoned salt and spread it on with a knife one bite at a time. Kind of slow eating but scrumptious as I get butter with every bite and little drips off.

I remember those corn holders.
Those things were a must eating corn right out of the boiling pot, like mom used to make.

Butter! Salt! First choice is to soak (in husk) in water and grill to perfection. 2nd choice is to insert my trusty (aka tacky??) corn cob knobs before boiling or nuking, which cool off in time to eat the corn. Yummy! There is nothing like fresh, local corn.

Funny you should say that! A friend dropped off 6 ears she bought at a local roadside stand. last night. The corn had just been picked and I ate 3 cobs and a peach for dinner.
Since the corn has just come into season here in Michigan, the kernals were small and crisp. Just the way I like it. When it's been out for a while the corn kernals get large and starchy. No thanks. This was some of the best corn I've ever eaten.
