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.

I've always boiled the water first, then added the corn, leaving it in 3 min after the water returns to boiling. (I had never tried it this way.) When you take it out of the water, dump it immediately into cold water (or simply run tap water over it for about 30 seconds). This trick will prevent the kernels from drying out and getting the shriveled look. My family eats corn as is--no butter or salt or anything; we love it! (But we're probably in the minority.) Thanks for posting a standard.

Perfect! Corn remained sweet and crispy tender. Boiling for only two minutes gets the corn nice and hot with overcooking it. Thanks so much for the post.

This is the very best way to do corn! It's sweet and tender and just perfect. 3 minutes is all it needs to cook to perfection. I skipped the juices and just stuck with the butter, salt and pepper. Thanks Jackie!
