Corn on the Cob~ It's our side dish!

I love corn on the cob! Don't you?  It's the perfect accompaniment to so many entrees. This corn I used was not the best.  It is a little early in the season in North Carolina for corn. But it wasn't bad.
 Here's all you need:
Ears of Corn
Butter
Salt & Pepper
Put a pot of hot water on your stove. I like to add just a pat of butter to the water.
Bring it to a boil.

While you are waiting for the water to boil, shuck your corn,
and scrub the kernels down to get rid of the silt. (little string)
 Boil your corn for 10-15 minutes. The longer
you cook, the softer your corn. Take your corn out of the
water with tongs, and shake the water off.
Serve with butter, salt & pepper.
When corn is at the height of its season, you really don't
need butter or salt or pepper. It's so good just boiled & eaten.

So, pretty simple, huh?
Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow for dessert!!
