I just love fresh corn off the cob…especially when it’s sweet and tender. Often, in the beginning of the season, the corn is a bit tough and not so sweet…good I learned a secret or 2 about how to make it sweet and tender.
1. What my mom always said was to add a little bit of sugar to the water to sweeten it up
2. I was at my friend Melissa’s house (Mel I hope it was your house, lol) and they had corn in a pot and the water was cloudy…when I a asked why, I was told it was milk and that the milk helped to keep the corn tender
So now, I always add sugar and milk in the beginning of the season so I always get sweet and tender corn.
