- 6-8 ears corn, husks and silk removed
- 1 cup milk (try to use whole milk)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 stick butter
Fill a large pot half-full with water, making sure all corn will fit in and be covered with water. DO NOT SALT THE WATER! I repeat, salting the water draws out the moisture of the corn kernal and makes it bitter!
Add the milk, sugar, and butter. Bring to a boil, add in corn cobs. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook for 8-10 minutes, or just until tender. Try not to overcook it or it will become tough and have the appearance of the stuff you find in bird seed!
Remove from water and serve with butter and salt to taste.
