How To Cook Corn
All you need to know about: How To Cook Corn.
Step 1: Prepare the Corn
Start by selecting your corn. You can use either fresh or frozen corn. If you are using fresh corn, you will need to remove the husk and silk before cooking. To do this, pull back the husks and remove the silk strands. Rinse the corn with water and pat dry.
Step 2: Choose Your Cooking Method
There are several ways you can cook corn. You can boil it, steam it, grill it, or roast it in the oven. Each method will result in a slightly different texture and flavor.
Step 3: Boil the Corn
If you choose to boil the corn, first bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon of salt per quart of water. Once the water is boiling, add the corn and reduce the heat to simmer. Cover the pot and cook for 6-8 minutes. When the corn is tender, remove it from the pot and drain.
Step 4: Steam the Corn
To steam the corn, fill a large pot with an inch or two of water. Place a steamer basket in the pot, and add the corn. Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and steam the corn for 7-10 minutes, or until it is tender.
Step 5: Grill the Corn
To grill the corn, preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Place the corn on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the kernels are tender and lightly charred.
Step 6: Roast the Corn in the Oven
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the corn on a baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes. The corn should be tender and lightly browned when done.
Step 7: Serve and Enjoy
You can now enjoy your freshly cooked corn. You can serve it as is, or dress it up with butter, salt, pepper, herbs, or your favorite seasonings.
