My Step Mother and Father came to visit my Husband and I a couple of years ago during the corn on the cob season. I have always boiled my corn on the cob with some salt. I was taught that way as a young girl. My Mother always cooked it this way as did my relatives. So, when my Step Mother showed me her way, I was so excited. It is so good, so flavorful, delicious. My Husband would not touch corn on the cob. He didn't like it. But, he decided to try my Step Mother's. He has not stopped eating it. So, I would not ever go back to the old boiling way. Enjoy. We do!!!!
