    4. Profit!

    The water steams the corn, the leaves trap the moisture in and prevent the corn from burning and the end result is juicy sweetcorn with a slightly smoky taste.

    Dead easy and goes well as a starter or a side to go with chicken.
    Nice, might have to try this on Sat.

    How long do you keep it on the BBQ, I've never actually cooked corn on the cob before

    Treat it like a sausage, keep the grate fairly high from the coals and give it a quarter turn when the leaves on the underside start to char. You can always cheat when you think it's done and peal the leaves away from the end slightly to test. All in probably 15-20 mins.

    I've been thwarted, can't find a single supermarket with the leaves on, all in plastic packaging cut into tiny pieces...

    That's disappointing. Have you tried Waitrose as they tend to go a bit posher and leave them on? Or ideally a local grocers.

    Thanks Waitrose is the place but of course none left when I get there so at least I now know for next time.
    You'd think posh would be wrapped up on a plinth but now the raw vegetable is gourmet/farmhouse/rustic...
    Sadly no grocers in my area just fake farm shops
