Web Chef Review: Ontario Corn-on-the-Cob at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comCorn that is fresh and in season takes less time to cook than corn purchased at the market in fall and winter, so adjust your cooking time accordingly.

Since this corn was purchased in May, before the corn season here begins, I am cooking it for 10 minutes. When I cook the corn from my own kitchen garden, I reduce cooking time.

I try my best to purchase locally grown corn, whenever it is available. Check out my review on Ontario Corn-on-the-Cob at Harvest Barn Country Markets:

It is vitally important not to water log the corn by overcooking, or by leaving it in the water once it is cooked. For about 3 or 4 servings, a dutch oven filled 3/4 of the way with water is pretty well ample. If you are cooking more corn on the cob, a large stock pot filled 3/4 full might be a better choice for you.
