This is one of my very favorite times of the year - when the sweet corn is ready. But I have one problem...I don't really know how to fix it. Well, not consistently, anyway. Sometimes it comes out perfect. Sometimes it comes out nice and chewy - not the way I prefer it! LOL
My mother-in-law says that she brings a pan of water to a boil, then drops the corn in, puts on a lid and removes the pan from heat and just lets the corn cook in the water until the rest of the meal is ready. I've tried this, it doesn't really work well for me.
I've also been told to bring the water to a boil, drop in the corn and let boil for 6 minutes. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't.
One way I've tried to cook it the last couple of years is to cut the corn off the cob and saute it in butter. When this works, it is wonderful!! When it doesn't, we're back to the nice and chewy.
I know we have some great cooks here. Tell me, how do you fix your corn on the cob?
Peace and Love,
