How to cook corn on the cob? This step-by-step recipe will reveal some secrets on how to choose and cook corn on the cob.

Description of preparation:

Remember, the younger the corn, the sweeter and tastier it is.

When the corn is young - its grains are slightly yellowish, but not white! If it is immature, then it will be completely tasteless. If the corn has bright yellow grains, then most likely it will be tough and not as tasty as young. When choosing corn on the cob, peel one seed and try it, if the seed turns out to be sweet, you can safely take it.

The question of cooking corn on the cob is perhaps the most difficult. Each variety is cooked differently. Corn can be cooked both in 10 minutes and in 2-3 hours. Therefore, how to cook corn, read the step about cooking corn.

How to cook corn in a pan so that it is soft and juicy?

This recipe was shared by reader Julia from Khabarovsk. She wrote to me that her boiled corn always turns out to be very juicy and soft due to the fact that she chooses only fresh and young ears for cooking. Well, let's try!


  • Corn - 4 pcs.
  • Water (boiling water) - 1 liter
  • Salt
  • Butter

The method of preparation in stages:

To get started, free the corn from greens, cut off the “tails”.

Place the cut leaves in a pan.

Put the corn on top.

Pour boiling water and cook for 20-30 minutes (no more!).

Sprinkle with fine salt.

Take a slice of oil and rub it with freshly prepared cereal. Enjoy your meal!

How long should corn on the cob be cooked?

First of all, I want to note that the time of cooking the cobs in the pan depends on whether they are young or old. Light yellow corn indicates that you have a young and fresh cereal in your hands. Therefore, it is enough for her 15 minutes after boiling to boil well.

If you have corn in the dark ears, then it is not the first freshness. Therefore, it can take significantly more time to cook it - from 40 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on the size and amount of cereal. So, 3 pieces of young maize will be cooked in about 20 minutes.

So, for corn on the cobs to boil well, you must completely immerse it in water and close the pan with a lid. In the process of cooking, it is very easy to check its readiness, armed with a toothpick and piercing the grain.

After you remove the cereal from the pan, you can rub it with salt, a piece of butter and your favorite spices. Peerless and hearty meal is ready. Bon appetit and healthy snack!

How much corn is cooked in a pot without an ear?

Corn without cobs is cooked a different amount of time, depending on what they will be used. If for bait, then they should be cooked from 30 minutes to one hour with preliminary exposure to water (for swelling) for 2-3 days.

By the way, it should be noted that the grains of this cereal crop are an excellent bait for fishing carp, crucian carp, rudd, roach, ram, bream, common carp, grass carp and even chub. The video (see below) shows detailed instructions for making an excellent fishing feed.

At the same time, they assure that corn is especially tasty if sugar is added to it during the cooking process in the amount of 1 tablespoon, as well as ½ tablespoon of salt per liter of water.
