I am the same way. To me, nothing says summer like a few ears of super sweet, tender, buttery, salty corn.
I make it the way my parents made it. I bring enough water to cover the corn to a boil, then drop the ears in and add about a tablespoon of honey. I cook it for about 6 minutes, then turn off the heat. I let it sit in the water until the rest of dinner is ready. Of course, it wouldn't be the same without some butter and salt!
