The Roasted Corn on the cob


6 ears fresh corn, unhusked
1/4 pound butter (1 stick), room temperature
2 teaspoons chili powder
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Juice of 1 lime


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the corn in its husks directly on the oven rack and roast until
the corn is soft when you press on it, 30 to 40 minutes.
While the corn is roasting, Juice the lime. Combine the butter with
the chili powder.
Peel down the husks and tie in a knot to use as a handle while eating.
Brush the corn with the lime juice. Rub the corn with soft butter
mixture. Salt and pepper them and spinkle with parmesan cheese. (This
roasting method produces the sweetest corn I have ever tasted.)
