    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    This corn has more flavor then any corn on the cob you will ever taste--boiled in its own husk keeps in the flavor. This how it was done in my great-great grandmothers' day.

      Everything old is new again! This is the only way I will boil corn from now on. It is more flavorful and it's so much easier to shuck! You have to let it cool a couple of minutes but then the silk just slips right off, totally, completely, no fuss, no muss. Thanks.

      Definitely flavorful and easy to shuck. Ours came out really chewy rather then crisp. Not sure if it was the corn or the 10 minute cook time.

      I thought this was quite nice! I wondered how easy to peel the corn would be what with wet silks and all but it really was a snap. I just used a towel to keep my fingers ok so no scorched fingertips! It doesn't really make the corn taste different but I didn't want my corn to taste different- just nice sweet fresh farmer's market corn- what else does it need? Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
