simple & easy method of cooking sweet corn!
  • 1 insulated cooler (cheap styrofoam coolers will not work well – igloo or Coleman suggested)
  • 12 ears sweet corn
  1. Place one or more pots of water on stove to boil.
  2. Shuck sweet corn, removing husks and silks.
  3. Place sweet corn in cooler.
  4. Pour boiling water over sweet corn until all corn is covered with water.
  5. Close cooler and let corn cook for at least 90 minutes. (anything less and the starches will not all convert to sugars)
  6. Serve.
Corn can be left in cooler for 4-6 hours (even all day if you decide to try this on your next camping trip). It will not over cook, but will stay hot!
