This is a great way to cook corn and with grilling the meat as well we didn't have to turn on the stove! Made as is and just put in on a couple minutes before the main course and all was done at the same time. Will be making this often in the summer so I do not have to heat the house with a pot of boiling water!! Made for TOTM-May 2010.

Such a neat, no-fuss-no-muss way to cook corn! No steam in the house on a hot day...hooray!

This is so simple and a different way to cook corn. I don't know what the ice cubes were for but these came out juicy. Love it! Thanks, baby/mom! :D Made for PAC Fall 2008.
