"All About Corn", Good Food Magazine, August 1986. Here is one method I use when I can't grill the corn.
- Husk and remove silk from ears of corn. Place in large pot and add just enough water to cover. Heat, covered, over high heat to boiling, then boil 2-3 minutes. Drain.
- Serve hot with butter, salt, and freshly ground pepper. A squeeze of lemon or lime juice over buttered corn enhances its delicious taste as well.
This was great! As others have reviewed, I've always brought my water to a boil before adding the corn. This was a great new way to prepare corn on the cob and have it come out really good. Corn on the cob is one of the only things that I add salt to anymore and we really enjoyed this. Thanks Jackie for a nice keeper. Congrats again on you Football win!
Delicious! I also used to boil the water first then add the corn. I like this way better. The kernels don't get overcooked. I used just the butter. Made for Rookie Tag Game 2013.
