In the garden now...CORN ON THE COB
(as found online from DAMN DELICIOUS BLOG)

So buttery, garlicky and loaded with Parmesan cheese goodness – grilled (BBQ)(or oven-roasted) to absolute perfection!

Serves 8 (party size! Cut in half for a small gathering)
Hands-on time 10 minutes
Cooking time 45 minutes
8 ears corn, unhusked
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

- 1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

- 2) Place corn, in its husks, directly on the oven rack. Roast until tender and cooked through, about 40-45 minutes.*

- 3) In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic and thyme; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

- 4) Peel down the husks. Rub each ear of corn with 1 tablespoon butter mixture.

- 5) Serve immediately, sprinkled with Parmesan and parsley, if desired.

*This can also be grilled with the husks removed and placed directly on a grill over medium-high heat until cooked through and charred, about 10-12 minutes.
