We suppose that you are not an exception to the rule that people enjoy eating corn on the cob. It can’t be helped – it is one of the most delicious foods Mother Nature bears for us.
Do you know the dietary truth of corn?
Well, here it is: white, yellow, pink, red, blue, purple, and black corns are all varieties of Zea mays. Each of these varieties contains its own unique health-supportive combination of antioxidant phytonutrients. Antioxidant activity, which helps protect the body from cancer and heart disease, actually gets increased when corn is somehow cooked.
Another truth is that, in the case of yellow sweet corn, there is a greater concentration of carotenoids especially lutein and zeaxanthin – the 2 famous phytochemicals that promote healthy vision. A midsize ear also offers a helpful 3-gram dose of dietary fiber.
Important health benefits of corn also include: controlling diabetes, prevention of different heart ailments, lowering hypertension and prevention of neural-tube defects at birth.
Boil corn or boil it not?
When it comes to culinary preparation of this delicious food, what most of us do is simply boil the corn in water on the stove top. So, let’s discover together a brand new way of cooking it. The trick is one of those simple-and-easy things, and it will help you to boil corn properly. You will be amazed, take our word for it!
Knowledgeable chefs do not boil their corn in hot water at all. Instead, they bring the water to a boil and add butter and milk in order to improve the flavor. Once the kernels of the corn become softened and soaked in the delicious ingredients, it will taste so much better because every kernel will taste like butter and milk.
You will also avoid the messy part because you are not going to smear butter on your corn and yet it will have the same taste.
