 I ALWAYS cook corn on the cob on the grill. I was thinking of boiling some tonight before it goes bad. How long do I boil it for??

 We usually microwave it for around 4 minutes, you can do it in the husk but usually I shuck it and wrap it in saran wrap.

 I think you boil it for 5-8 minutes, I'm not really sure though, lol.

 Basically what I did. Put 1/4 cup sugar in the water along with the corn. Brought it to a boil and once it started boiling, timed it for 8 minutes. It could have cooked a HAIR longer but it was tasty.

I usually cook mine for 1/2 hour or so...or until you can smell it.  But that's not from starting at boiling point.

 My mom always put sugar in it also, once time my mother, my grandmother, my sister and I all added sugar thinking no-one else had, it was so, so bad, lol.
