Classic Corn On the Cob

This recipe shows you how to make classic corn on the cob the right way, without over-boiling the corn.

After removing the corn husks, you need to remove the corn silk. Corn silk is the long, thread-like strands of plant material that grows underneath the husk of a fresh ear of corn. To clear this, grab the corn with both hands and rub it back and forth with some pressure under running water until the corn silk falls off.

Then you can proceed with the recipe here.
