Boiled Corn on the Cob


  • ears of sweet corn
  • lots of butter and salt


  • Peel the corn and remove the silks.
  • Fill a large stockpot half to three-quarters full with water and bring to a boil
  • Add corn and boil for 15-18 minutes. More or less depending on how many ears you have in your pot.
  • (You'll know it's ready when the kernels are plump and tender. Also, when the smell of sweet corn is wafting up from the pot)
  • With tongs, remove the ears of corn from the hot water and place them on a platter. Serve while hot with lots of butter and salt.
