Corn on the Cob
Yield: 4 servings
- Carefully remove husks and all silk from the corn.
- Cover with boiling water.
- Cook ten minutes, or longer if the corn is old.
- If salt is added to water, it turns the corn yellow and toughens the husks.
- Very tender young corn needs little cooking.
- Salt may be added (one teaspoon to a quart of water) two minutes before removing from the fire.
