Simple Stove Top Corn on the Cob

SERVES 6  |  ACTIVE TIME 5 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 20 Minutes

6 ears corn (shucked and rinsed)
¼ cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste

Fill a large 12 quart pot ¾ full with water.  Cover pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Remove cover, add corn and sugar.  Cover.  Bring back to a boil.  Once corn comes back to a boil the corn is perfectly crisp.  If you like your corn tender you can boil it for 3-10 minutes.  We like ours boiled for 10 minutes.

Allow corn to keep warm in the water until ready to serve, up to 1 hour.  Remove corn from the water to serve.  Spread each piece with ½ tablespoon butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve and enjoy!
