Using a large pot, bring salted water to a boil and cook shucked corn for 5 minutes. Add milk and butter to the boiling water for sweeter corn.
Ways to Enjoy
Use the oven to roast shucked corn. Season and eat as a side dish or take it off the cob to make a fiery corn salsa.
Corn from the grill has sweet and smoky plump kernels. When the husk begins to separate from the tip of the ear, remove from grill.
Bright and summery corn is so versatile. It can be used in casseroles, salads, salsas, corn bread and so much more. Beyond its sweet buttery flavor, corn has a high fiber content, contains B vitamins and essential minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper and iron. It’s also a good source of antioxidants that promote eye health.
STORE ears in the husks until it’s time to cook. Try to use corn the same day or soon after it’s purchased. Or store it unwashed and unhusked in the crisper drawer of your fridge for up to a week.
BUY ears with bright green husks wrapped tightly around the corn. The ears should be firm. Avoid any that feel dry or have small brown holes, which may indicate the presence of bugs.
PREP corn for grilling either in the husk or shuck the ears so corn can be seasoned. Wrap corn in foil or put ears directly on the grill for intense smoky flavor and attractive grill marks. If desired, remove kernels with a knife.
