Last year when I posted about how much I like roasting corn, I had several people tell me that the most delicious way to cook corn is to boil it with a cup of milk and a stick butter. I finally got around to trying it and I agree – this is the most delicious way to cook corn.
If you haven’t tried cooking corn this way, you must.
The corn cooks up so flavorful, fresh tasting and rich. You’ll be so obsessed with it you won’t even care what else is being served.
No need to slather butter all over the corn. This corn already has a buttery taste.
Just a little salt and pepper and this corn on the cob is ready to go.
And actually, if you use a stick of salted butter, you might find you don’t even need to add any salt.
Some people add sugar too, but I find the corn available around here during the summer is already sweet enough.
If you suspect your corn is a little lacking in flavor, you might want to add some sugar to perk it up.
Best Way to Cook Corn on the Cob
- 6-8 ears of corn, husks and silks removed and cut in half (if desired)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 stick Challenge butter
- Fill a large pot about halfway with water.
- Bring water to a boil.
