• Boiled Sweet Corn

    RAGBRAI is long over, and I’m finally settling back into a routine that includes cooking for myself instead of buying meals 5+ times a week, and eating leftovers the rest of the time. I’m easing back into things with some simple dishes.

    I couldn’t resist the sweet corn the produce market downstairs had on sale this week, but for the life of me I can never remember how to cook it. Save me, Internet!

    Joyful Abode to the rescue:

    • Fill your pot with water.
    • Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar.
    • Drop in your corn.
    • Bring everything to a boil, making sure the sugar is dissolved in the water.
    • Boil for no longer than 8 minutes.
    • Remove from the water and let it cool enough for handling and eating.

    I used around 1/4 cup of agave nectar in place of the sugar, and set the timer for 6 minutes when the water hit a good boil. Perfect!

    Gentlemen, I give you...CORN!
