I prepare it 2 ways
Directly on the grill ( no husk) brush a little olive oil.
No husk in the microwave covered for 6-7 minutes.

You're all missing the best way to eat corn. My favorite is fried corn. Cut the corn in thirds and put them in the fryolator. Fry until slightly brown. YUM

It's a south'rn thang.

OK Tex Mex time - around here, roasted corn is DA BOMB. You can find roasted corn trucks at many sporting events, flea markets, etc. They roast the corn, and then peel the husk back, and dip the whole thing down in melted butter. Then there is a table of all sorts of condiments - chili powder, parmesan cheese, lemon pepper seasoning, cajun spices, hot sauce, mayo (believe it or not, mayo topped with parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of Tony's Cajun spices is FABULOUS!) - you name it, the spices and toppings are there - even ranch dressing - LOL!

OMG this is good. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.

I refuse to buy GMO corn also. I buy only organic or I buy from a trusted source that is like-organic that does not use GMO seed. I think it makes a huge difference on taste.
the corn we see today had been gentically modified for thousands of years,,,,,most of the veggies today have been modified,,organic or not..

No, in all due respect, this is not at all true. It is propaganda spread around by Monsanto and other biotech companies that would like us all to believe this.

There is a HUGE difference between artificial selection and the genetic modification they do with GMOs. This is the root of the confusion.

What we've been doing for thousands of years is artificial selection.

Genetically modified foods have only been around a very short time.

Artificial selection in corn, wheat, etc involves selecting out the seeds of the plants that have the characteristics we want (more yield, sweeter taste, faster growing, more resistant to drought, etc) and planting those for the next crop.... and then doing this over a large number of generations until you end up with a seed variety that will reliably produce the traits you want. This is NOT genetically modifying the food in the same sense as GMOs.

Genetically modified crops involved taking some DNA out of one species and injecting it into the DNA of another species.... for example, a piece of flat fish DNA in a tomato.

Not the same at all.

Blanch the corn - microwaving it with the ears covered with wet paper towels will do as well - and then grill it just enough so that the ears are toasted.

After that, all you need is butter. That's it!

When preparing corn in the cob, less is more...

Put them in the oven directly on the oven racks with the husks on. Silks come right off.

It seems to calm it and prepare it for it's final destination!
*chuckles*

I add milk to a big pot of cold water, sprinkle in a little sugar, add corn, bring to a boil, immediately remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Perfect every time.
