Wow! It's amazing that it's this simple! I used this technique tonight and my family was so impressed with the flavor and tenderness! My mom is diabetic and usually won't eat corn, but she heard the others talking about how good it was and she splurged, saying, "Every time I've had corn, it just hasn't had any flavor, but I'm really glad I tasted this tonight." Again, WOW! Thank you soooooo much!

I am so happy I found this recipe!!! Lately, I have been disappointed in how soggy our corn on the cob has been. I have made this twice and both times the corn has been cooked to perfection! It stays a little crunchy and is so sweet. I do not remove it from the pan when done cooking - just leave it covered until serving time and it stays perfectly hot. Thanks so much to you and your mom for this method. I am deleting all other corn recipes from my cookbook. No need to ever use another. Just delicious!

Good method to steam corn compared to boiling corn. The bottom corn was still a bit waterlogged but the top layers were perfect. I'm thinking of using this method but adding a steam basket so the corn is not "in" the water. Thanks for posting the method!

Pretty good, easy enough and NOT a whole pot of water, boiling away in the kitchen, when it is 100F outside. I'll file this one under 'great ideas'! And I'll use your idea again, Linda's Busy Kitchen! Thanks for sharing!

There is nothing better than fresh corn on the cob, and made this way it is the most tender, juicy and delicious corn you could ever imagine biting into. No more soggy corn for us!

I have tried several of your recipes and have always loved them. This one is another to add to my list! Tender, juicy and nutritious steamed corn. Tastes so good you don't even need the butter!

Perfect. This is the way I will cook mine from now on. I ate half one just to try it and then used the other 2 1/2 in a salad.

I stacked the corn vertically in my large pot with tthe core down and the corn was tender and delicious and not waterlogged at all. My new way to cook corn from now on!
