How To Cook Corn on the Cob

There is perhaps no better taste of summer than sinking your teeth into a fresh ear of corn. Corn on the cob is a staple at backyard barbecues, and outdoor summertime gatherings. The sooner you eat the corn after it was picked, the better it will taste. Unless you grow your own corn, you will want to buy it at a local farm or farmers market, where it will be much fresher than the corn available at most supermarkets. 

Corn on the cob is really easy to cook. Just follow the simple directions below, and enjoy the sweet taste of summer while it lasts!

Instructions:

  1. Remove the husks from each ear of corn to be cooked.
  2. Scrub each ear with a vegetable brush to remove the silks.
  3. Rinse the corn.
  4. Boil enough lightly salted water to cover all the ears of corn.
  5. Cook the corn, covered, for about 6 minutes or until tender.
  6. Serve with butter, salt, and/or black pepper as desired.

Ahhh.... The sweet taste of summer! Nothing is better than feasting on the tasty harvest of fresh grown fruits and vegetables. Sinking my teeth into a fresh cooked ear of corn after a bowl of fresh tomato soup is a great payday for the labor I've done in my garden.
