The first time I ever tried it raw was at a farmer's market. We were looking at the corn, and the farmer took an ear cut it into 4 pieces, and gave each of us one to try. It was so good that we bought some to take home for dinner. Getting ready for dinner, I looked in the fridge and couldn't find it. Then I saw the four eaten cobs in the trash can...the two kids had eaten them all!
As far as roasted in the husk, YUMM! I like to mix some chicken bullion powder (instead of salt) and red chili powder into some softened butter. Spread it on the kernels, then pull the husks back over it and toss on the BBQ (you may need to wrap in aluminum foil to hold it all together). Mmm, mmm good!
