Roast Corn on the Cob

Every summer, my family looks forward to corn on the cob. I make it extra special by roasting it, all wrapped up on the grill. —Johnnie McLeod, Bastrop, Louisiana

  • 6 ears fresh sweet corn

  • Remove husks and silk from corn. Place each ear on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18x12 in.). Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 ice cube. Wrap securely, twisting ends of foil to make handles for turning.
