Boil it in a HUGE pot on the stove for a while.. I think about 20 mins until it's "not crisp" anymore... is it yellow corn or white?

Thanks! I think it is a mixture of both. Harvey's had them on sale yesterday for 10 for $2.

I would say a big pot all ready boiling with a bit of salt in it, put the corn in cook for 10 minutes and you can take out what you need and leave the other for up to another 10 minutes with the the stove off, and there ya go.

Yeap, lots and LOTS of butter!

Yellow corn takes a few more mins to cook. I do mine about 15-20 mins depending on how you like it.

And yes, add salt to the water. That way you don't have to add too much later... gosh, now I'm craving it!


We also like fried corn!

I'm glad my mom isn't reading this. SHe looooooooooooves corn on the cob! I tease her that she was a crow in a past life.

Sounds like you have Peaches and Cream corn (both yellow and white kernels). Bring your water to a boil and cook corn for about 10 minutes. If you overcook it the kernels can get tough. This will also depend on how you are used to having things cooked. My dear old mom (God rest her soul) cooked the daylights out of everything. We always had mushy vegetables until I started doing my own cooking. I once told her the steak was already dead, she didn't have to re-kill it. She laughed and said that's what she was used to.

We bought a big sack of that Peaches and Cream corn several years ago for a family picnic and there were no leftovers.

Thanks for the help all. The corn on the cob turned out wonderful I am not sure if it was peaches and cream just 2 different kinds of corn that I picked out. Most likely silver queen and field corn which is yellow. The sign over the corn just said sweet corn it didn't say what kind the corn was. It was yummy anyway.
