When we went strawberry picking a little while ago and they had a lovely market stand at check out, so of course we had to grab some other produce and a couple of their sauces too! This beautiful corn was one of the things we grabbed on our way out.
This is a simple update to a basic boiled corn recipe that adds a touch of extra sweetness to your finished corn! It was a easy variation on a classic - and the corn really did come out perfect. We enjoyed these tender ears of corn alongside some super sticky Peach BBQ Baked Chicken Legs!
Sweet and Easy Corn on the Cob
4-6 ears of corn, silk and husk removed
2 TBS granulated sugar
1 TBS lemon juice
- Fill a large pot with water (enough to cover the corn once added), and add in the sugar and lemon juice.
- Bring to a boil and simmer the corn on low for about 10-12 minutes until cooked through.
- Drain, and serve with butter and salt if desired (but we didn't think it needed it)!
