    Good recioe. For "trjogaa" you can eat ripe corn raw. If it took more than 3 to five minutes to get done it was probably too old. If you buy corn at a store or stand pick firm full pieced - no need th pull down the husk - and wait unti the water is boiling before you shuck. Corn starts drying out and loosing both taste and nutritional value within minutes of being shucked. never but corn that was already shucked.

    This was very tasty, however, it took longer than 3-5 minutes for the corn to cook--more like 10-12 minutes.
