You can grill corn on the cob in aluminum foil, or just use the corn-husks. For this recipe we will assume that you’re using corn husks. Since you’re probably not crazy.
Corn should always be on the cob. Don’t bother with canned corn. Or frozen corn. Avoid all non-cobbed corns at all costs.
This is a simple recipe for cooking corn on the cob. Very simple, in fact. As you are simply going to boil it in some water.
Ingredients for Boiling Corn
Corn on the cob. What is wrong with you? What did you expect?
But you’ll probably want salt and butter. And maybe pepper too.
How to Boil Corn
First thing you’re going to do is find your biggest pot. Something big enough to fit a whole ton of water and all the corn you’re going to boil in it. If you need one, go here.
Fill the pot about two thirds of the way with water, and put it on the stove at maximum heat.
While you’re waiting for the water to come to a boil, remove the skins from your corn. As you’re removing the skins, spray the corn under the faucet to remove as much of that stringy stuff as possible.
Once the water has boiled, throw in all your corn.
Cook anywhere from one to ten minutes. The longer you cook it, the softer the corn will be.
Corn Cooking Tips
- Roll the cooked corn over a stick of butter until you can’t see corn anymore. Corn’s not very good anyways.
- Add salt and pepper.
- If you can, grill your corn on the cob instead. It’s better that way.
