Green Corn Boiled In The Husk

Remove the outside husks of good corn. Loosen the inside husks and remove the silk, then roll the husks back into place, and with a sharp knife cut off the ends and also the butt of the corn. Throw these into a large kettle of boiling water; boil rapidly for five minutes. Serve on a folded napkin in the husks.

Plain Boiled Corn

To be perfectly good, corn should be cooked the same day that it is picked. Remove the husk and the silk; throw the corn into boiling water; boil five minutes. Long boiling destroys the flavor and the sweetness of the corn.

Stewed Corn

Boil the corn two minutes. Then score down each row of grains; press out every particle of pulp of the corn, leaving the little covering of the grain on the cob. Put this into a double boiler, season it with a palatable amount of butter, salt and pepper, reheat and serve.
