Cooking Corn
To grill: Heat grill to medium-high. Remove outer green layer of the husks. Fold back inner husks and remove corn silk; rewrap. Soak corn in cold water for 10 minutes. Grill until husks are slightly charred and corn is tender, turning after, about 1- minutes.

To boil: Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add a pinch of sugar. Shuck corn and add to pot. Return water to a boil and cook corn until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and serve immediately.

To microwave: Remove outer green husks and corn silk. Leave inner husks around corn or shuck completely and wrap with damp paper towels. Cook no more that four ears of corn on high at a time, about 2 minutes per ear. Turn corn halfway through the cooking process.
