Recipe: Herbed Grilled Corn

I’ve always loved corn on the cob. One of the great things about it is that it’s so easy to cook, especially if the husk is still on the ears. Then you can just pop it in the microwave or the oven. Without the husk, most people would drop the ears in a pot of boiling water. But I found an even easier way that can be used on an outdoor grill, on an indoor grill pan, or just in the oven.
