EDITOR’S NOTE (October 11, 2018): Simmer time reduced to 3 minutes (was 8 to 10). Comments about this recipe in Facebook food groups prompted me to try a shorter cooking time. Cooked corn is buttery, plump and delicious! Click here to see the recipe’s video posted on my Facebook fan page.
Plump and buttery. Boiled in salted water, a cup of milk, and a stick of unsalted butter. Much better than boiling in salted water only.
Most corn is already sweet. If you like more sweetness, add a little granulated sugar to the mixture before boiling corn.
