Supersweet Corn sets new records for cooking speed! Here are five great methods.

Skillet-Steam In a skillet, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Add husked corn in a single layer. When the water returns to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook until hot, about 3 minutes; drain. (Corn can also be cooked on a steamer rack, over boiling water, about 3 minutes.)

Boil In a deep saucepan, bring 4 inches of water to a boil. Add husked corn. When the water returns to a boil, cook until hot, about 2 minutes; drain.

Roast Preheat oven to 500° F. In a shallow baking pan, place husked ears. Roast until corn is hot and some kernels turn golden brown, about 7 minutes.

Grill Prepare a medium-hot fire. Grill husked corn, turning once or twice, until hot and some kernels turn golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Microwave In the microwave, place no more than four ears of husked corn, wrapped individually in damp paper towels. Microwave on high power until hot, about 2 minutes per ear.
