This recipe for Basic Corn on the Cob, by Terri McCarthy, is from McCarthy Family Cookbook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
Bring salted water to boil in a large pot. Drop cobs into the water and bring back to boil. Corn cooks quickly. Cook corn until the cob gives slightly when pierced with a knife but is not soft. Boiled corn (husked, with the silk removed) cooks in 2 to 3 minutes. Steamed corn takes about 10 minutes. Serve warm with lots of butter!
