Ingredients

  • ears of corn
  • Sugar, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4  Tablespoons  butter

Directions

Shuck the corn and remove the silk. Rinse it in cold water.

Cut 2 squares of tinfoil just longer than the ears of corn on each side, and place the corn on the foil. Sprinkle on sugar, salt, and pepper to taste. Thinly slice the butter into 8 equal parts, and place 4 on each ear of corn.

Tightly roll up the foil around the corn, and make sure the ends are twisted shut. Cook over white hot campfire coals for about 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the fire, unwrap, and eat immediately.
