Best Cooked Corn on the Cob

Reviews about the Recipe

“O.M.G. Seriously the *best* corn on the cob we have ever had! Sugar & lemon juice? Insane! But it worked beautifully! I am somewhat of a corn snob (and would personally be perfectly content eatting it virtually raw from the stalk) so I was somewhat hesitant and made two pots – one just in boiling water, the other as you directed in your recipe. The subtle sweetness of the sugar meshed with the tangy lemon juice was superb. Thank you so much for recipe!”

“Outstanding! From now on, this is how I will be making corn on the cob… you can’t taste the lemon juice or the sugar, but it adds a subtle sweetness and the corn doesn’t get overcooked and chewy. Love it! UPDATE 2018: 6 years later, this is still the only way I will make corn on the cob – even my mom wanted my “secret” for great corn EVERY TIME.”

“I can’t believe it but truly the best corn I’ve ever had. When I read the recipe and reviews I thought this is crazy, it can’t make a difference to add sugar and lemon juice but it honestly did. It really brought out the flavor of the corn. And I also didn’t believe that letting it sit for 10 minutes would thoroughly cook the corn but it did, perfectly. I would recommend when putting the corn in making sure the water comes back to a boil for a few seconds before turning it off to let it sit or you can keep it on the lowest lowest setting for the 10 min. I will be making corn this way from now on!!”
