Southern Style Milk and Butter Boiled Corn on the Cob

This is the season for corn and my family and I love sweet corn on the cob. 
We like it grilled, boiled, steamed, and roasted but until recently I had never tried it 'Southern style', which is boiled in a pot of water with milk, butter, and sugar added. 
I read about it online and had to give it a try. Guess what? It was pretty darn good!
The corn was tender and sweet and the girl's even had seconds!

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 ears of corn, husks and silks removed 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 stick butter {I use unsalted} 
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • water 

Directions: 

  1. Fill a large pot about halfway with water then add milk,sugar, and butter.
  2. Add corn and bring to a rapid boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Simmer corn for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
  5.  Remove and serve.


Corn was on sale 6 for $1 this week {score!}. 
So naturally I stocked up and decided to make a big pot of 
Milk and Butter Boiled Corn on the Cob.
First, peel all the corn, removing the husks and silks.
Fill a large pot about halfway with water.
Add 1 cup milk and 1/4 cup sugar.
Add 1 stick of butter.
Add corn, about 6-8.
Bring to a rapid boil.
Reduce heat to low.
Simmer corn for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
Remove from the pot and serve.
