Taste the Best Corn on The Cob By Adding 2 Ingredients to Your Pot


It’s sweet, delicious corn season. That means  we can all get ready to enjoy fresh ears of corn.  Now I’ve eaten corn on the cob for decades and I’ve never heard anyone adding milk and butter to the boil. So I got Curious, and cut up 5 ears of corn into halves and put them in a pot of water. I brought the water to a boil and then added 1 cup of milk and 1 stick of butter. After about 8 minutes the corn was ready to go.

The corn came out of the pot full of flavor. For once I didn’t have to slather any butter on as the corn already had a rich buttery taste from the milk butter bath. I just added a little salt and it was some of the best corn I’ve tasted. Give this corn a try at your next potluck or backyard BBQ.

    I’ve always added 3 Tbsp of sugar to the pot while boiling. I used to add salt until I found out that boiling corn in saltwater makes the kernels tougher.

    My mother froze corn. She blanched it on the cob. Cut it off the cob and bagged it up and froze it. Then when she cooked it she’d put milk and butter in with the frozen corn. Put a lid on the pan on low and let it thaw. Really good.
