It’s mid-July and that means that corn on the cob is in season in my state! I’ve always loved the taste of delicious sweet corn as a side dish or snack on a summer evening!
Fresh corn on the cob can be a wonderful addition to any barbeque or a weeknight meal. It is delicious grilled, but my favorite method is so simple. When I want corn done right, I love to boil it. There’s no messy husk to attend to and the flavor is great!
Kevin and I enjoyed some corn on the cob this past weekend, using this method:
4 ears of corn, shucked
Optional: Sea salt & butter
Forks or tongs
3. Cook the Corn: Cover the pot with a lid and lower heat to medium. Set a timer. For just softened corn kernels, cook for 4 minutes. If you like softer corn, cook for 6-8 minutes.
4. Serve the Corn: Serve corn immediately with butter and sea salt.
