Corn on the Cob ( Cooked in the Old Ways)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by southern chef in lo

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.
