Perfect Corn on the Cob
A simple recipe that is a terrific side dish. Posted to the site as a RecipeLink anchor, since it's such a common summertime side dish." I agree that adding sugar rather than salt to the water replaces the sugars lost after corn has been picked (credit "Cooks" magazine...a really great source!). If we add sugar to the water, though, thenwe have to boil rather than steam it for the sugar to get back where it should be. Otherwise, spot on!" - Mercere
