Why do you boil corn on the cob in water with sugar?
The sugar in the water used to cook corn on the cob brings out the sweetness of the corn, making it even tastier.
Can I use precooked corn on the cob?
You can use vacuum-packed corn on the cob, which will only require cooking/heating for 5 minutes, but they won’t be as tasty.
