  Now that sweet corn is becoming available I need to jog my feeble mind as to how I did that 25 years ago. If I put some corn still in the husk on top of the crabs do I need to steam any longer? I also think I pulled a few of the dark layers of husk off leaving a thinner layer of lighter colored husk.

Gary you got it right but. I half husk like you said meaning i cut off both ends then remove half or more of the husk, then i wait till the last 10 min of team time for the crabs and put the corn on top of crabs. Corn or the cob only needs 10 min. of steaming.

My wife loves steaming the crabs and corn together. She cuts off both ends, pulls some of the thicker covering off and puts them in last before putting the lid on. We steam it at the same time length as the crabs. Depending on amount of crabs we are steaming. Close to a bushel(which is the most I sometimes catch) 30 minutes. Couple dozen(which is typical), 20 minutes.

 Good eating with the JO spice seasoning affecting the taste.

  Thanks guys, I did this before but took a 20 year break from catching and steaming my own crabs and this 65 year old brain sometimes needs refreshed.

Do you guys like to remove the silk before or after steaming? I tend to remove the silk then re-cover the corn with the husks.

   I was wondering that too,do you de-silk your corn prior to steaming or put it in whole?  This could start a whole new thread on Marylanders who don't clean being slobs versus Jersey guys that throw there corn in pasta sauce etc. ........
     Mine always comes out with a funky vinegary taste if I de-husk and sometimes seems like it needs more time if I wrap it in foil, so tell me guys (at the risk of hijacking this thread) what is the preferred way of cooking your corn along with crabs during steaming?

 The best way is to wait until the last 10 min. of steam time. I cut off the ends and peel away most of the husky to a thin layer and put right on top of crabs. i fyou stean corn on the cob for 20 or 30 min. it will be over done and most don't know the differance.

Last time I peeled back the husk and sprinkled with JO#2 then pulled the husk back over the corn. That was tasty.

Steamed the corn with the crabs Thursday. They tasted great after 25 minutes steaming with the crabs. Sprinkled some JO#2 on them along with the crabs.  Planters Paradise guy said he'll have corn till the end of September. Time is running out for fresh corn. That's truly when summer is over, when the fresh produce  (tomatoes, corn, cantaloupe, cucumbers, and others) is not available.
