To Boil Green Corn
Pick out ears near the same size, and have the water boiling when you
put them in; half an hour is long enough for young corn; that which is
old and hard will take an hour or more; if young corn is boiled too
long, it becomes hard and indigestible.
To Fricassee Corn.
Cut green corn off the cob; put it in a pot, and just cover it with
water; let it boil half an hour; mix a spoonful of flour with half a
pint of rich milk, pepper, salt, parsley, thyme and a piece of butter;
let it boil a few minutes, and take it up in a deep dish. Corn will do
to cook in this way when too old to boil on the cob.
