How do you make sweetcorn?
Bring a pot of water to a boil (check that the pot is big enough to hold all the ears of corn). Add shucked ears of corn, cover, and turn off the heat. Let sit at least a minute, at which point the raw corn will be warm. After two minutes the corn will be hot and starting to get tender.
How can you tell if corn is bad?
Look for tassels (those things sticking up out of the top) that are brown and sticky to the touch. If they're dry or black, then it's an old ear of corn. Check out the color of the husk. If it's a bright green and tightly wrapped against the cob, then the corn is fresh.
What do you put on corn on the cob?
Freezing fresh corn is done one of two ways: on the cob or off. Freezing corn on the cob follows the same steps as freezing the kernels, except you'll be freezing whole cobs of corn. Cobs occupy far more freezer space, so keep that in mind. Corn frozen on the cob sometimes develops a cobby flavor or becomes mushy.
How do you take corn off the cob and cook it?
Place a few ears of corn at a time in the boiling water. Cook 4 minutes. Using tongs, remove the corn and immediately plunge into the ice water until cool. Drain excess water from the ears over the bowl before cutting corn off the cob.
How do I Steam corn?
Put 2 inches of water in the bottom of the pot, add salt to the water and cover with a steamer basket. Place corn in the basket and cover pot. Break the corn cobs in half if necessary to fit them all into the pot. Bring the water to a boil and steam the corn about 7–10 minutes, depending on the tenderness of corn.
