Preparation / Directions:
Prepare the corn. Heat lots of water in an 8 quart pot. Add the milk, sugar
and salt and let water come to the boil again. Dump in the corn and allow
water to get back to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer about 8-10 minutes.
Serve with butter, or my favorite way, showered with black pepper.
Leave the husks ON. Boil it in water, milk, sugar and salt. The husks add
flavor and dimension, the brew of milk, water and sugar rejuvenate tough
corn. No - this is not ten minute old corn, but pretty good corn all the
same. Tender, plump and buttery-tasting. Something to hold on to till summer
brings back its freshness.
