Matt Anderson's Take
Looking for an easy, no-nonsense recipe to boil corn on the cob? Let's get cooking...


Step 1: Boil a large pot of water, something that will be large enough to hold all of the corn.


Step 2: Remove the corn husks and silk (the silk are those hair like strands inside the husk).


Step 3: Once the water has a rolling boil, gently place each piece of corn in the water.


Step 4: Start your timer. Cook your corn for between 4 to 10 minutes. If you like a little crunch in your corn then you'll want to be on the lower end of that time frame. I prefer a slightly softer corn and go for a full 10 minutes.


Step 5: Pull your corn out and let it cool off on a plate. Turn off the heat. Wait until the water reaches room temperature before emptying.
