First sweet corn of the year!

It's a little early, but it's always fun to have the first sweet corn of the year. Usually not the best of the year, but still a treat.

My favorite way to prepare it is:

Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil.

Remove the husks and silks.

Salt the water. Add the corn to the pot and bring back to rolling boil. Cover the pot, turn off the heat, and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove the corn from the hot water and serve immediately.

This works best if the pot is not overly crowded, because it will take too long to come back to a boil.
