My husband and I agreed that the original recipe for this corn needed a little jazzing up, so I added the thyme and cayenne pepper to suit our tastes. Now fresh summer corn makes a regular appearance on our grill. —Kathy VonKorff, North College Hill, Ohio

"I thought this was a great recipe, but the husband said they were just so-so."

"The first time I made this, it was great! I only used a pinch of cayenne. The second time, I had run out of dried thyme and used GROUND thyme and 1/2 tsp cayenne. It overpowered and was bitter. Will go back to my first attempt with dried thyme when I will definitely make again. It cooks well in oven too."

"My husband said this was THE BEST corn on the cob he's ever eaten... We don't like cayenne so I omitted that..."

"Tried this one out for a bunch of friends at our 4th of July cookout.... it was a huge hit! I might add a touch more salt to it, but thats just me. I also used garlic chives bc thats what I have growing in the back yard...YUM!"
