    I could spend three paragraphs, writing about how corn gets from the farm to your table, but frankly that’s not why you clicked on this topic. You just want to know how to make the perfect corn on the cob! I have 2 recipes that I’d like to share with you.

    The first version is how to make corn on the cob, and have it still taste as fresh as possible. Find the biggest pot you have in the kitchen, the bigger the better. Fill the pot 3/4 of the way full with water; hot or cold, it doesn’t matter. Let that sit on medium heat for awhile until it starts to boil. Since there’s so much water, it might take a little longer than you think, but don’t get discouraged.

    As soon as the water is boiling, add a pinch of salt, and toss in the shucked ears of corn. Wait about 10 minutes, and check the corn. If the ears are soft, you’re ready to go. If not, give it a few more minutes in the water. Add salt and butter, and you’re ready to go!

    My other recipe, is one of my favorites. For this one, you absolutely do NOT need to shuck the corn, leave the leaves on, but you do need a grill or a campfire is even better. Wrap each piece of corn tightly in aluminum foil, and toss it directly on the coals/wood. Ten minutes later you’re ready to eat!

    Make sure to never touch the fire directly, or the foil, which will be extremely hot. The corn will have some blackened spots, but don’t let that fool you because this will be the best corn you’ve ever tasted!
