Easy Boiled Corn On The Cob

Boiling corn on the cob is one very simple way to enjoy it. This easy boiled corn on the cob takes just 20 minutes to make and it is very sweet and milky.

I’ve discovered that when corn is fresh, it only needs around 20 minutes to boil, and I’ve been overcooking it many times in the past.

Corn on the cob makes a great side dish, party snack and kids love it. You can also add 1-2 tsp sugar to the water when boiling your corn to enhance the sweetness.

Place corn in a pot and with enough water to cover corn. Bring to a boil and add 1-2 tsp sugar (optional) . Reduce heat to medium and cover. Boil corn for 20 minutes check if ready, and if it is, remove from heat. Drain water, you can brush corn with butter and add some pepper if you like.
