  1. Thanks for addressing the issue of the silks. I’ve seen a few recipes for the oven process and most say nothing about the silks. I like your thoroughness!

    1. Thank you, Cheryll! We do try to be thorough – we want to be sure our recipes have the same delicious result for everyone!

    1. Shelly, When corn is left in the husk while cooking (grilled & roasted) the silk is super easy to remove.
