Carefully peel back corn husks to within 1 inch of bottoms; remove silk. In a small bowl, combine the butter, dried basil, sugar, salt and garlic; spread over corn. Place basil leaves over butter mixture. Rewrap corn in husks and secure with kitchen string. Place in a stockpot; cover with cold water. Soak for 20 minutes; drain.
