    Ok
    i bought 2 corn on the cob
    the ckik behind the counter told me put in cold water and slowly boil for atleast 30minutes.
    I don't trust her ( she looked like she had worked there too long)
    anyway
    instead of looking on google or opening a dusty cook book
    How long exactly should they be boiled?
    It started to boil 2 minutes ago
    Thank you for advice
    ?

    I usually get the water boiling first and give mine 15-20 mins if it is preapred cobs, but if you are cooking it with the "husk" on 30 certainly will not do any harm.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    oh shit - i put them before it boiled
    its been on for 6 mins - and no there no "husks" (husks are the leaves no?)
    so 9 more mins should be ok no?
    I great at barbequeing them but this boiling thing is beyond me.

    just give them 20-30 once the water starts to boil.... you won't really harm corn by a little overcooking

    I guess I joined in to late. If you're BBQ'n, leave them in the husks and put them over to the side that has little heat.

    MMmmmm.....
