Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Corn?

I used fresh corn on the cob with the husks still on, but you can use frozen corn if you need to.  I love to get my corn from the farmer’s markets in the summer.  It supports our local farmers, and I get fresh tasty corn.  If corn is not in season or you don’t have a farmer’s market nearby, you can usually buy fresh corn at the grocery store.  You also can make this recipe with frozen corn on the cob, as well.

If you buy corn with the husks still on, make sure you shuck it or peel it off and cut the ends off before you put it in the pot.  Sometimes, it’s hard to get all the silk strings off, but it is OK, they won’t hurt anything and most of them will come off in the boiling water.

When you make this recipe, thoroughly wash the corn, this also helps get rid of some of the silk strings.  Add them to the pot and cover them with about an inch and a half of water above the corn.  Add the butter, salt, and sugar before you start to boil it.  In about 10 minutes you will have the best Buttery Corn on the Cob you’ve ever put in your mouth.

Ingredients

  • 4 ears of corn, shucked with ends cut off and washed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 stick of butter, or 4 tablespoons

Instructions

Shuck all the corn, cut the ends, and remove as much silk as possible.

Wash the corn thoroughly, and place in a large pan.  Fill the pan with enough water to cover the corn about an inch and a half.

Add salt, sugar, and butter to the pan and turn on high heat until boiling.

Once the corn starts to boil rapidly, turn down the heat to medium-high and boil for 10 minutes.

The corn is ready to eat when the 10 minutes are up, but they can sit in the water and stay warm until you are ready to serve it.
