6 ears corn, silks removed, leave the husks on
1 quart any kind of milk, I used 1% milk
1 -2 tablespoons sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
Put the milk, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix it around to dissolve the sugar and salt.
Pull the husk back from the corn, but don't remove it. Remove as much silk as you can and pull the husks back to cover the corn.
Add the corn to the bowl with the milk, and refrigerate for an hour or more. If the milk doesn't cover, then just come back and turn the corns a few times! Drain the corn, but do not rinse. Cover with foil or just grill them in the husk on medium-high for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Butter them if you like.
