Both the yellow and white varieties of corn are members of the grass family. Corn or maize has a hard cob covered by sweet, pulpy kernels. The ears of corn are protected by layers of a paper-like husk. There are many ways to prepare corn, some recipes call for removing the kernels while others leave the corn whole. A simple way to prepare maize whole is to roast it in the husks. After roasting, the husks make a handy holder to use while enjoying your food.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the rack in the center of the oven.
Peel back the husks halfway to remove the "silk" threads by pulling them away from the corn with your fingers. Toss the threads away. Inspect the corn for pests.
Fold the husks back over the kernels and place them directly on the rack of the preheated oven. Roast the corn for 30 minutes turning them once halfway through roasting.
