Easy Sweet Corn on the Cob

There’s not much to this recipe, it’s just a pot of water and corn. I only added it on here because I can never remember if I’m supposed to boil the water then add the corn, or add the corn to the pot then bring it to a boil.

Is there a right way? Or is it all preference? Either way, the way I do it can be found below…
