2 tablespoons unsalted butter (optional)

Aluminum foil


  1. Heat the Oven. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Shuck the corn and wrap in foil with butter.Remove the husk and silk from the corn. Wrap each ear of corn in a 6-inch piece of aluminum foil — add 1/2 tablespoon butter to each package if desired.
