But now I get it perfect every time! Begin by boiling a pot of water, enough to cover the ears of corn. Once it's boiling put in the corn. I boil mine for 10 minutes. But if you like it a little more crisp and fresh you may want to do less time. I like them soft and chewy.
We also cut the corn off the cob. Our family doesn't like eating if off the cob so I cut it off then add butter salt and pepper. Yum!
