How to Boil Corn at Home

Ingredients

  • 2-6 Ears of Corn, depending on amount needed to serve

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Pinch of Black Pepper 

 

Best Corn on the Cob Recipes

Milk Boiled Corn
 
 
Prepare corn by shucking. Slice off each end piece of the corn. This gives you neat corn sections but is optional. I usually cut corn on the cob into halves or thirds. You can serve the whole ear of corn if preferred.
 
Add water, heavy cream or milk, butter and seasonings to a stock pot or dutch oven.
 
Add the corn on the cob pieces.
 
Bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
 

Classic Southern Milk Boiled Corn

 
Remove corn and serve.
 
Some people add sugar to the boiling liquid but I find that it is not necessary with fresh corn, which already has a sweetness to it anyways.
 
When I prepare corn this way, I have also found it is not necessary to butter the corn while eating it. All of the flavor you need is already there! Simply delicious.
