as many ears of corn to feed the crowd
Cooking corn on the cob for a big crowd, using only boiling water and an ice chest: Give your cooler a good wash and scrub, then place all the corn peeled and hair removed all in the cooler. Pour enough boiling water over to cover the corn. Close the lid of the cooler tight and let it set for 30 minutes. This works perfectly. The corn will keep warm and ready to eat for at least 2 hours. Enjoy! --- To make at home use a smaller cooler- same principle.
I did this Saturday for a BBQ, drained the corn about 12:30 pm, when we bagged the leftovers at 8 pm, the Ziploc's got "steamy". AMAZING!
