Cook's Tip: To cook fresh corn on grill, pull back husks from corn, leaving husks attached. Remove and discard corn silk. Bring husks back up around corn; tie in place with kitchen string or strips of corn husk. Soak corn in cold water 30 minutes or up to several hours. Remove corn from water. Place on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; grill, covered, 20 to 30 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 15 to 25 minutes) or until tender, turning occasionally. To cook frozen corn on stovetop, heat nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add corn; Cook over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
