Fresh, summertime corn on the cob is gently steamed in a vegetable steamer to preserve all its delicious nutrients and flavor!
Add three inches of water to the stockpot of a 6-8 quart steamer.
Bring the water to a boil.
Once boiling, place the steamer basket atop the pot and add in the shucked ears of corn (mine can hold about 4 ears comfortably, depending on their size).
Lower the heat to a simmer, and place the lid on top to securely cover the corn.
Allow the corn to steam for about 10 minutes, until tender and easily pierced with a fork.
Remove and add butter and salt as desired.
Eat warm for best taste!
