Boiled Corn on the Cob

Print  Friendly and PDF
Summer doesn't officially begin till middle of next month but it does feel like summer already. I am transitioning one from of my least favorite season to another.. Spring because I can't step outside without getting attacked by Pollen and Summer because it gives me nasty Skin rashes. :(.

I probably will have to sail through Summer drinking cold smoothies, slushes and eating corn. And nothing screams summer like corn. I am seeing corn everywhere I go. And boiling these summery corn till they are juicy and tender is how I like mine.

  • 6 Sweet Corn, with few layers of husks intact
  • 2 Tbsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp Sugar
  • A big pot of water
  • Bring the water to a roiling boil. Add salt, sugar and stir.
  • Dunk the corn in the water. The water should almost cover the corns.
  •  Lid the pan and cook for 10 minutes. Turn the corn midway.
  • Remove the corn from the pan and plate it. Once its warm enough to be handled remove the husks and silk.
  • Stick the corn holders on each side and sink your teeth into splendid juicy corn.

  10. @Chef Mirelle: Yes, it is a lot easier to peel after you boil them. The silk and husks cling together making it easy to peel them in one or two swipes.

  11. @Shweta: Welcome to my space.Thanks for stopping by.
