How to Make Juicy Sweet Corn

Corn is such an awesome vegetable, it is one of the few veges that my kids will eat.  I did some research and found that I have been cooking my corn the wrong way.  Here is what I end up doing, combining several different tips from experts. Hope you will try it and taste the difference!

1. Boil water in a large stock pot.  DO NOT PUT SALT

2. Remove Husk and break into half and place into boiling water and cover with a lid.  I have 6 ears of corn here.

3. Cook for 10 minutes only

4. Add 2 tbs of butter into boiled corn and let it melt

5. Shred 2 cups of Cheddar Cheese

6. Remove Corn from water and put a chopstick as holder

7. While corn is still hot, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top

Placing butter into the water will save you a step from doing it yourselves.  Especially when you are making corn for the whole family.  Also not putting salt in the water will prevent corn from getting tough.  I never know how long corn should cook for, I had no idea it only takes 10 minutes. 

Hope you enjoy this recipe!  My kids and I sure did! Yumolicious!
