Is there any thing i can do to prevent this or is it normal for this to happen? when ever i boil water and add anything to it it stops boiling,so being a newbie in cooking do i leave it there and it will come back to a boil or do i kick it up some ? If i kick it up some when it does boil i have to adjust the heat so dont boil over. Sorry if this is a stupid question.....i just would like some help on this. Thanks again. This happens with either corn on the cob,kob...sausage,hot dogs etc.... for noodles if i have the water at a rolling boil this doesnt happen,but i cant have a rolling boil for all things? So does this happen to you all, or is there a secret?
