Boiled-in-the-Husk Corn on the Cob

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Prepare Flavored Butter; set aside. Leaving husks intact, peel from tip of cob to base. Remove and discard any damaged or discolored outer husks. Thoroughly remove all silks from each ear of corn (a nubby kitchen towel rubbed briskly between rows of kernels makes easy work of this, Scott says). Rewrap husks around cobs, then tie ends with strips of husks or 100-percent-cotton kitchen string.
  2. In large kettle, bring 6 quarts water to boiling and add 3 Tbsp. kosher salt. Add corn. Cook corn 10 minutes. Using tongs, remove corn from water; drain briefly. Serve corn with Flavored Butter. Makes 6 servings.
  3. In small bowl stir together softened butter, salt, crushed aleppo pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cover and let stand at room temperature 3 hours for flavors to meld; or refrigerate up to 24 hours, then bring to room temperature before serving. *Scott prefers Maldon sea salt, which is available at specialty food and grocery stores, or online at kingarthurflour.com.**1/2 tsp cayenne pepper can be substituted for aleppo pepper.

From the Test Kitchen

*If Aleppo pepper is not available, just increase the amount of cayenne pepper in the butter.
