Chili Lime Corn on the Cob

4 ears sweet corn in husks
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a small bowl, combine butter, lime zest, chili powder, garlic, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Without detaching the cornhusk from the ear, carefully pull it back and remove the silk from the corn. Replace the husks, and soak the corn in water at least 30 minutes. If the husks are too loose, secure them with kitchen string. Remove the ears from the water and drain. Peel back the husks and dry the ears with a clean towel. Spread the butter mixture evenly onto corn. Replace the husks and grill for about 25 minutes, or until tender, turning about every five minutes.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
