Corny Problems

cornThis morning I decided to cook corn on the cob. We haven't eaten anything but frozen corn for years, but I bought three beautiful ears at a nearby farmer's market yesterday. Now for my problem: How long do you cook corn on the cob? It's been so long, that I didn't want to spoil it. I looked at every corn recipe in Cook'n, but couldn't find the answer. Then I decided that perhaps you would like to include (or perhaps have, but I didn't know how to access it) a simple chart of how long to cook/ steam fresh vegetables.

PS - I steamed mine for 10 minutes, and it still tasted raw. I guess 15 minutes would be about right.

Hi Corrine,

That is a great idea! I'll pass it on to Dan. In my classic Pillsbury book, it says to boil ears for 5-8 minutes; steam ears for 5-9 minutes, or microwave them for 3-4 minutes per ear (let stand 2 minutes.) If you are at a higher altitude, the cooking time will be lengthened. Also, if the corn is old, it will take longer to cook.

Thanks for the idea,
