Do you find that some basic cooking skills are so hard to get a grasp on?  In fact, these skills are the determined factors of a good cook or a good chef.

Cooking corn on the cob is one of the best examples.  Why?  If you had ever experienced to buy the best corn on the cob in the local farm market, you were anticipating that nice, fresh, crisp and sweet corn on the cob.  Next, you realize that they are chewy.  What happened?  It was overcooked.  How disappointing, huh?

Where the corn comes from and when they harvest it definitely makes a big difference of the quality.  With this method, you will bring out the best out of it.

The other thing I want to emphasize....this recipe calls for Himalayan Pink Salt and Cane Sugar.  You may think that they are just fancy ingredients.  In fact, making this recipe countless time, I found that these 2 ingredients make a huge difference in taste.

Once you try them, you know what I mean.  And you don't want to go back to regular salt and sugar.

Besides, they are 100% natural which have more health benefits for you, especially the Himalayan Pink Salt.

So, learn this recipe and enjoy the corn on the cob this summer.
