The Freshman Cook: 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


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!!
