Corn on the Cob

Okay, now you think I have lost my ever loving mind don't you?? I mean how hard is it to boil corn on the cob? Not hard but there is a secret. Want to know what it is? Read the "recipe" and you will have the secret to good corn on the cob, no matter if it is fresh from the plant or a few days old from the store. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today!


10 ears of corn on the cob-cleaned
1 pot of boiling water
1 cup white sugar

When you fill your pot with water add your sugar. Now heat your water to boiling, now add in your corn. I boil mine for 20-30 minutes but that is up to you. You may wonder what sugar does for the corn, well I will tell you. It brings the natural sugar out in the corn. See the sugar goes to starch when corn is picked. It happens pretty fast too. I just always add sugar to my corn water. Once corn has boiled, pour off water and eat with loads of butter, salt, and pepper! Summer is almost here!!
