How to Boil Corn on the Cob Perfectly

Okay so this is really  not something I ever even thought about until I was about to put my corn in the pot and thought... uh oh... how do I do this? It seems simple enough, right? Husk corn, remove gross silky things, fill pan with water, bring to boil, remove corn.... But I knew that there had to be more to it than that. I turned to my trusty Google search engine and met the wonderful sight Joyful Abode with a post titled "How to Boil Corn on the Cob Perfectly." Fantastic! I read the reviews to make sure that it lived up to the hype and, sure enough, we went for it.

Now I have to admit that I should have Googled "how to pick out the perfect corn" before I bought my pieces and I was pretty skeptical about how they would taste - especially since we were supposed to be using them as a portion of a dinner we were serving to other people. But even with my less-than-average-corn-choosing-skills these turned out PERFECT! They were sweet and crunchy and I liked them so much that I might just have to get the leftovers out of the fridge right now and eat them! And when it is this simple, why not just try it?

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
I think that you need to write more on this subject, it might not be
a taboo matter but generally people don't talk about such topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

I no longer boil my corn on the cob - after being told that some of the nutrients get lost that way. First I was advised to wrap each cleaned ear in saran wrap and microwave for 2 minutes per ear. This works well, and the plastic wrap keeps it warm for a long time - however, I really didn't like using all that plastic... so now, I clean the ears and place them in a microwavable casserole dish with the lid on. After 2 minutes per ear on high I have perfectly cooked (steamed?) corn with no additives of any kind! I confess, I like mine just like that, but my husband rolls his in butter and adds salt.
