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.
Husk corn, being sure to remove all strands.
Bring to boil an ample amount of water in a stock pot. Add corn, turn down to medium and make sure cover allows venting to prevent boil-over.
Boil for approximately 5-6 minutes. Take out of the water and serve hot.
ekho 1y agoI'd never thought of or heard to add sugar instead of salt. Makes a big difference in the taste. Had to share this to FB for all the July 4th cookouts that'll be happening this weekend!

Mercere 4y agoI 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!

kumayama 6y agoIF you are going to boil it, be sure not to put salt in the water--it makes it tough. What IS good is putting a couple of tablespoons of sugar in the water before putting in the corn. Brings out the sweetness of the corn, but does not make it taste extra sweet.
