Corn on the Cob with Lemon-Pepper Butter
“Roasting corn this way is as old as the Ozark hills in which I was raised. My grandpa always salted and peppered his butter on the edge of his plate before spreading it on his corn, and I did the same as a kid. Roast plenty - this corn is a favorite!” —Allene Bary-Cooper, Wichita Falls, Texas
