How to steam the corns?/옥수수 찌는법/如何蒸好吃的苞米 ?

In Korea, summer is the harvest season for corns. Corns from the Kangwon Province (강원도/ 江原道)are Korean favourite. I was told that the best way to keep the best taste of the corns is to steam the corns immediately  on the day after picking them from the farms. If you buy them in bulk,steam the corns and keep in the freezer, steam the corns again whenever you want to eat....oh,yes! Don't throw away the ears of the corns, place them on the bottom of the steamer and steam together with the corns, the taste will be more better....

在韩国,炎炎夏季是苞米丰收的季节。产自 江原道 (Kangwon Province /강원도)的苞米更是韩国人的首选。 我被告知,最佳保存苞米原味的方法是将当天从园里採下的苞米,马上将苞米蒸熟。若您买大量的苞米,那就全将苞米蒸熟,然后放入冰冻箱内保存。他日想要吃的时候,再将苞米弄热即可。 哦! 对了!请别将苞米的外皮扔掉,将它铺在蒸笼内一起蒸,味道会更好。。。。


                              


Put the ears of the corn  on the bottom of the steamer before you place the corns on it...
铺一些苞米的外皮在蒸笼内,然后才放上苞米去蒸。


Method :

1. Remove the corns silk (苞米须)and ears (苞米外皮).

2. Put the corn ears on the bottom of the steamer before you place the corns on it.

3. Pour the water just enough to cover the surface of the corns.

4. Add in a pinch of sugar  and salt in the water.

5. Cover the lid of the steamer and steam it for 10 minutes with high heat.

6. Steam it for another 10 minutes with medium heat.

7. Steam it for another 30 minutes with low heat.
