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.
