How long should you boil corn? It sounds like a straightforward question, but your answer says a lot about where you grew up and your relationship to corn. Although I grew up in Iowa, where corn is indeed king, I’ve lived in several very different regions of the country as an adult (Rocky Mountains, Pacific NW, Kentucky) that, well, don’t grow much corn. But first, a disclaimer: I don’t actually know that much about corn. So consider this a non-expert Corn Fangirl blog, where hopefully I can share my love of corn and a bit of why it means so much to my home state.
