Corn. I love it like Bubba Gump loves shrimp. I love Creamed Corn, Cut Corn, Salt and Pepper Corn, Corn Bread, Cornmeal Pancakes, Candy Corn, Pop Corn, Kettle Corn, Corn on the Cob....you get the idea.
Corn on the Cob is one of my summertime favorites, after watermelon and of course, bbq chicken! As summer is coming to a close, I've been making sure I find some good ones each week or so, as my kids love it almost as much as I do.
I thought I'd share my hard and fast Corn on the Cob rule with you.
And it's really simple. Two words. SEVEN MINUTES. That's all. Easy peasy, and it's perfect every time! The water boils (I always add a dash of salt), you plunk them in...just barely submerged....seven minutes. Drain, stick them back in empty, hot pan! Do not leave them floating in the water or put the cover back on the pan - - they'll get overdone...just eat them as soon as you can without burning your fingers. YUM!
