15-minute Corn on the Cob
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 5 corn on the cob shucked/peeled
- 1 to 2 Tbsp sugar
- Butter optional
- Black pepper freshly ground (optional)
Place corn in a large soup/stock pot and fill it with enough water to cover the corn.
Bring water to a boil and add 2 Tbsp of sugar (1 Tbsp for a smaller pot and 2 for a huge one).
Cover, reduce heat to medium and boil 15 minutes. When time is up, sample few kernels of corn before turning off. "Older" corn may take a few more minutes to cook. Kernals should be crisp-tender.
Remove from heat and drain. Butter and pepper your corn if you like. Best to eat it fresh, or wrap it in foil and save it for later.
