corn on the cob, husks and silk removed
O.M.G. Seriously the *best* corn on the cob we have ever had! Sugar & lemon juice? Insane! But it worked beautifully! I am somewhat of a corn snob (and would personally be perfectly content eatting it virtually raw from the stalk) so I was somewhat hesitant and made two pots - one just in boiling water, the other as you directed in your recipe. The subtle sweetness of the sugar meshed with the tangy lemon juice was superb. Thank you so much for recipe!
I couldn't tell a difference from just boiling the corn in water as usual.
Absolutely delicious, I did add a little milk to the water which I always do anyway.
Outstanding! From now on, this is how I will be making corn on the cob... you can't taste the lemon juice or the sugar, but it adds a subtle sweetness and the corn doesn't get overcooked and chewy. Love it!
SUMMER! I grew up in NW PA on a Dairy Farm where we grew a lot of COB; I've always cooked it the same way salted boiling water, add the corn, cover and remove from heat.i don't know what compelled me to check out ideas but I found 2 yours with lemon juice and sugar and another with vinegar and sugar..used 2 pots and lemon juice won hands down. The vinegar and sugar was better than my original method but after 30 years will ever use anything but sugar and lemon juice again. The leftover corn that I butter and wrap for easy microwave reheating stayed crisper and didn't have the mushy spots. Thanks for a great recipe !
Thank you Jamie! This helpful hint made it so easy. Perfect corn on the cob! Not mushy, very firm just like I wanted.
Sweet and so easy...try it!
Loved it, loved it, loved it. Thank you Jamie. I like easy recipes that taste good and don't require a lot of ingredients or fuss. This was fabulous. Didn't change a thing.
