Boiled Corn On The Cob

1 Mins read

But if you want to make this all year round (and you don’t have much faith in the corn), the sugar will make all the difference here.

No need to slather on that softened butter either. The butter bath has taken care of all that work for you. Simply garnish with chives (and season with s+p if needed) and serve.

No, but really, this milk-butter bath is simply epic here. It doesn’t require too many ingredients (nor much effort). And if you have some really really sweet corn this season, you can absolutely opt out of the brown sugar.



Milk boiled corn! Truly THE ONLY way to cook corn on the cob (in an epic butter bath of course)! So buttery so sweet!
