Reviewed Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob

May 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

The corn cooks perfectly and retains a fresher taste. I had never cooked corn on the cob this way until last evening -- and I'm Iowa-born, so you know I've probably cooked my share of corn over the years! The best part: the corn silk comes right off! Less mess and better taste. What's not to love?

Picture 14 guests bundled up around a fire, clutching their cups of this delicious soup! Can't wait to taste the leftovers on day 2. Very easy to alter this to make low sodium and low fat. Used low sodium chicken broth and f...
