Corn on the Cob - Boiled

Corn on the Cob - Boiled created by frostingnfettuccine

We have been given some fresh corn by friends, since it was so fresh I didn't want any of the corn flavour to be removed so I boiled the corn. This dish is simple yet quick could be used as a side dish or plate filler.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large pot, enough to hold the corn, fill it with water to cover the corn (the corn should float).
  • On a medium heat allow the pot of water to boil. Once the water is boiled, add in the corn into the pot and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes depending on how soft you want your corn.
  • Drain water and remove corn on the cob. Be careful as cob will be extremely hot.
  • Top the corn with preferred seasons, herbs and spices. I prefer salt, pepper and butter.
  • Enjoy.

    Grama and Mom always husked the corn while the water came to a rolling boil, added a little sugar, dropped the corn in, turned off the heat, and left the corn in until the rest of dinner was on the table. Came out tender, without being mushy.

    I never boil corn. Leave them in the husk, get them wet, wrap in foil, lay them on the rack in the oven, bake for 30 minutes in 350 degree oven. Easy and perfect every time!

    We always added a bit of fresh milk to the water. Instead of sugar. Kept it sweet. Grandmother did this.

    I find that if you add a tablespoon of sugar to the cooking water it brightens up the taste of the corn.

    The more methods you can combine, the better the recipe. I love corn on the cob when it’s tender from boiling, when it’s smoky and some kernels are caramelized from the grill. Take off outer husks and snip off any silk protruding from the husk. Put prepped corn in large pot of boiling water. Boil for 8-10 minutes. Wrap corn in foil to guard against burning. Place corn on grill for another 10 minutes or so, turning frequently. Ready salted butter for the hot steamy ears of corn that are served to salivating guests.
