Baked Corn on the Cob

6 ears of corn on the cob
1 stick butter for rubbing the corn
salt and pepper to taste
aluminum foil

Rub each ear of corn liberally with the stick of butter. DO NOT BOIL CORN!!! Salt and pepper to taste. Seal each ear in aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes to mix juices. Note:

Baking corn in butter is much better than boiling it. It is much juicier and the flavor is sealed in, so that it tastes much better.

Well, I finally did it right! LOL!

I cooked it 45 minutes with butter and garlic salt. It was soooo tender, and delicious. I won't ever boil corn again.

You should give it a try!

And the garlic salt sounds good, too!

Glad you all thought it was funny.

It wasn't a disaster. We thought it was funny.

Well, I finally cooked the corn!

At 30 minutes, it was nowhere near tender, so I decided to keep cooking the corn, we'd eat lunch cause we were starving, and I'd serve the corn for supper.

We started watching football, and a short 6 hours later I remembered they were still cooking!

I'm going to try it again this weekend since I still have more corn!

I'd never thought of that.
