CORN ON THE COB
There is no vegetable much more tasty or fun to eat than corn on the cob. It is a perfect addition to any cookout or barbecue and just about everyone loves it. Here is how to make it.
Husk and remove silk from ears of corn. Slice off both ends of the corn ears about 1/2 inch from the ends. Rinse in cold water.
Place a large kettle with cold water and 1 level tsp. sugar per ear of corn you are planning to cook on burner over medium high heat. Place corn in water.
You need enough water to cover the corn by about 1 inch. Cover and bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat. Leave covered. Allow corn to steam in hot water for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove corn from water and drain.
Brush corn with melted butter. Serve. Salt and pepper to taste.
This is always a wow treat that will make you popular with the cookout crowd. Just about everyone loves gnawing corn off the cob. It is fun and it is delicious. Be sure to have a lot of napkins handy though. The corn is juicy and your fingers still get buttery even with those cute little corn prongs you put in each end to hold your corn on the cob with. Enjoy.
