I LOVE fresh corn and my favorite way to eat it is on the cob. It's a cheap and easy way to make burgers and hot dogs more exciting and seasonal. When I was about 9 years old, I was taught to make corn this way. It's really the best way because it's foolproof and the corn doesn't have to fight for grill time or space. This method boils the cobs with a few husks in the bottom of the pot to get the most flavor, but you could easily do it without the husks if you'd prefer.

Remove husks and silks from the corn cobs, keeping enough healthy looking husks to line the bottom of a large pot. Place husks in the bottom of a large pot and fill about 3/4 with water. Salt water and bring to a boil. Add corn and boil about 5-10 minutes. Remove from pot and add butter and salt to taste.
