Best Way to Cook Corn on the Cob
No sugar water and no butter? Thanks for the great recipe…. Enjoyed reading your site. The corn came out perfect!
Cooked it for 5 minutes. I boiled for 3 minutes and it came out lovely. In canning recipes Splenda is ok to use but suggested to use half the amount. The sugar gives the corn a nice sweet flavor. Corn has enough natural sugars in it to bring out the sweetness. I used agava liquid cane sugar which gave it the same sugar taste with less calories and no preservatives. I agree with what was said…if you already have a problem. Most of the sugar probably gets thrown out with the water when you drain…then soaking multiple ears of corn decreases this by more.
