We have been given some fresh corn by friends, since it was so fresh I didn't want any of the corn flavour to be removed so I boiled the corn. This dish is simple yet quick could be used as a side dish or plate filler.

This is the way I grew up eating corn on the cob and I can't remember the last time I boiled it! This really brought back delicious memories. The corn was topped with butter, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Made for Aussie Swap.
- 1 corn on the cob, remove husks
- 1 tablespoon butter (optional) or 1 tablespoon margarine (optional)
- salt, to taste (optional)
- ground black pepper, to taste (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large pot, enough to hold the corn, fill it with water to cover the corn (the corn should float).
- On a medium heat allow the pot of water to boil. Once the water is boiled, add in the corn into the pot and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes depending on how soft you want your corn.
- Drain water and remove corn on the cob. Be careful as cob will be extremely hot.
- Top the corn with preferred seasons, herbs and spices. I prefer salt, pepper and butter.
