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.
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!
Absolutely delicious, I did add a little milk to the water which I always do anyway.
Thank you Jamie! This helpful hint made it so easy. Perfect corn on the cob! Not mushy, very firm just like I wanted.
So deliciously sweet and easy to make! Definitely making corn on the cob this way from now on! :)
Loved this corn on the cob and how quick and simple it is to make. Thanks a bunch!
This was so easy and it came out crisp and not mushy at all. I used frozen cut corn. I couldn't even taste the lemon juice. I thought it would make this bitter but all it did was make this fresh and crisp. Fabulous corn! Thanks for sharing your mother in law's great recipe.
