So Sweet! Steamed Corn on the Cob

So Sweet! Steamed Corn on the Cob

When you steam corn on the cob in just a little bit of water while they're still in their husks, they become so sweet and delicious.


Corn on the cob (with husks)
as needed
depends on amount of corn, about 50-100 ml
High quality natural salt
to taste


1. Wash the corn while still in the husks. Cut into sizes that will fit in the pot you will be using.
2. Add water to a pot and place the corn in the water without overlapping. Sprinkle with high quality salt.
3. Cover tightly with a lid and steam over medium heat. When the steam begins to escape from the lid, lower the heat to very low and steam for 3-5 more minutes.
4. Stop the heat and leave covered for another 10 minutes, and then they're done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I heard that cooking corn on the cob while they're still in their husks helps to keep the sweetness from seeping out, so now I always use this method.
