My big sister, Leanna, gave me this easy recipe for perfect corn on the cob: Fill a large pot 1/3 with water and cover it. Heat to boiling. While water is heating, shuck the corn and rinse it. When water is boiling, put the corn in and cover the pot. Turn off the flame. Let the corn sit in the hot water for 3 minutes. Cut off the stem end, strip off leaves and silk, and enjoy! We love the white Brentwood corn here in the Bay Area. It is so sweet I like to eat it for dessert.
