Roasting ears in their husks gives corn an appealing smokiness.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slit husks on one side, and peel back from corn; remove corn silk. Fold husks back around corn; tuck in a few herb sprigs, a sprinkle of salt, and bits of butter. Tie with kitchen twine, and place in a baking pan. Roast until tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven; remove the husks, and serve.
