There are plenty of ways to cook corn on the cob and plenty of different seasonings to add to it to make it extra special. I love grilled corn on the cob and I love to add just a little salt and pepper to mine. However, boiled or steamed corn on the cob is so simple. My boyfriend and I were talking about how our mom's make it and it turns out that they do it pretty much the same way. They always add a little bit of sugar to the water when it boils. It adds a hing of sweetness and brings out the natural sweetness of the corn. So good! Matt's mom also adds a little bit of butter to give it some extra flavor. So we made it this way and it was so good. I served it with my Super Easy BBQ Grilled Salmon but you can serve it with pretty much anything.
- 6 medium Ears of Corn
- 1/2 tbsp Sugar
- 1/2 tbsp Butter
- Plenty of Water
Add the corn to a large pot. Fill with water until it almost reaches the top of the corn. Add Butter, Sugar, and a good amount of Salt. I probably used about a tbsp to get the water salty. Heat over high heat until boiling. Let the corn boil for about a minute, then turn off the heat, cover, and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Remove corn from the pot, drain, and add your favorite toppings.
Serve with a summery meal and enjoy!
