Perfect Boiled Corn


Over cooking corn is a very common mistake made when cooking fresh corn. My husband taught me how to cook this perfectly. Now the only question we haven’t solved is the right way to eat corn on the cob: from right to left like a typewriter or biting the corn round and round.


  • 6 ears of corn, shucked and cleaned
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • Water (enough to cover corn)
  • Salt and butter to taste


Step 1

Put water to boil in 5 quart container. Bring to a rolling boil.

Step 2

Add the corn, cover and boil for 10 to 12 minutes. Corn will be cooked but firm.

Step 3

Remove and season to taste with butter and salt.
