Sugar
Lemon Juice
Cold water

Directions:
Directions:
Husk corn and remove silk.
Place corn in enough UNSALTED cold water to cover.
(Salt toughens corn) Add 1 Tbs. sugar and 1 Tbs. lemon juice for every gallon of water.
Heat to boiling; boil uncovered for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; let corn stand about 10 minutes, then immediately move corn from water to a serving platter.
Leaving corn in water will diminish its flavor and overcook it.
Add butter, salt, or whatever you like.
Chopped cilantro or Tarragon are yummy sprinkled over the butter!~

Personal Notes:
I have been served bad corn on the cob many times...either undercooked or water-logged and flavorless. This has been the best way to cook corn on the cob. It is always perfect!~ Betty Crocker Cookbook~
