Over the 4th of July holiday I was home visiting my family and my Grandma made some unbelievable corn. It was perfectly cooked and super tasty. I asked my Mom and Grandma for their secrets. The key was to boil the corn. I could not believe it, but the corn comes out perfect each and every time.
- 2 ears of corn
- 6 quarts of water
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tbs of sugar
This recipe works for for more ears too. As you increase the water, increase the salt and sugar.
Shuck the corn and remove the silk.
Fill a pot with cold water and add the salt and sugar. Then add the corn.
Place the pot on the burner and turn to high. When the water starts to boil, set a timer for 10 minutes.
That is it. When the timer goes off, remove the corn and you have perfect corn every time.
So simple it almost seems like it won’t work. But it works every time. The corn comes out plump and juicy, never chewy. The easiest way to cook corn ever!
