What is the sugar for????? Gee, corn on the cob is good just the way it is, boil in plain water, and eat it!! I use no butter or salt on it either when eating it. My husband piles on the butter and salt!! Killer corn!

I find the sugar interesting too. I might try that next time I have yellow corn, something tells me it might be a sweetness overload with sweet white corn though.

I used to make sure my corn was covered in butter and salt. Now I just put salt on my corn when it's boiled. I still use butter on the grill though. I like to get ears with the husks still on, peel the husks back to remove the "hair" inside, being careful not to tear the husks all the way off, smear some butter and salt on the kernels, flip the husks back up around it, wrap in foil, and toss on the grill.

Either way, I like to cut it off of the cob before I eat it. I've gotten tired of getting corn stuff stuck in my teeth as I get older. :lol:

I get soooo much corn stuck in my teeth when I eat corn on the cob!! But I get all kinds of food easily stuck in my teeth. That's why I keep a toothpick dispenser on the kitchen table.

I guess the sugar is just to sweeten up the corn a little but. It's personal preference. You can use it or you can not. I don't even think I really noticed it much sweeter since I still use butter and salt and my corn so I probably wont use the sugar next time. I know the butter isn't good for it, but I've got to have some way for the salt to stick to it ;).

It really lets out the aroma of the salt. People say I'm crazy when I tell them heated table salt has a smell, it's not like the ocean, but it does have a smell. :D

I learned something interesting about corn on the cob today. :D
There are as many stringy strands between the kernels and husk as there are kernels

I had something odd happen today too. I got a package of pre-husked corn on special from the grocery store that looked fresh at first glance, but maybe a minute after putting it in boiling water brown kernels started popping up all over the cobs. :neutral:

That's odd. Maybe the corn wasn't as fresh as it looked and that's why it was on special!

That was my first thought too.

I've never seen corn turn brown while it's boiling before. At first I thought I was seeing things, then more brown kernels started showing up and by the time I grabbed a tong to check it out probably a third of the kernels on each cob were some shade of brown.
