Recipe Notes

 

 

******************

Remove husks and silks from each ear of corn. Cut in half (optional).  Before boiling, “wash” corn in clean sink filled with warm water and 1/2 cup of salt.  Rinse in clear/warm water.  I always do this to remove insects.   

Yellow corn is already sweet.  However, if you prefer more sweetness, add 1/2 teaspoon of granulated sugar to the water mixture before boiling corn.
