Step by step recipe with photo
Boiled corn is a simple, hearty, and delicious dish. For me this dish is one of the main pleasures of August. Of course, corn cobs can now be bought all year round, but seasonal, young, sweet corn is a real delicacy, which is simply criminal to miss!
Recently, I have preferred the "lazy" options for cooking corn - roasted on the grill or baked on coals. These are, of course, great ways to quickly and easily cook corn, but, unfortunately, the opportunity to cook on an open fire is not always available, so I want to share another way to cook corn on the cob - boil it with milk and butter. It's simple, but the result is really great!
The recipe is essentially a version of the traditional corn boiled in salted water, but so lucky that I will now cook corn just like that! Adding a little milk and butter to the water in which the corn cobs are boiled gives an absolutely wonderful result. The already sweet and juicy corn becomes simply incredibly tender and creamy in taste - absolutely impossible to come off. Try it!
So, boiled corn with milk and butter …
Prepare your ingredients.
In addition to traditional corn cobs and cooking water, you will need a cup of milk of any fat content and a little butter. Salt, sugar and pepper to taste.
Peel the corn cobs.
Break it in half.
Fill the pot halfway with water. I put the ears in a saucepan for a while and add just enough cold water so that the water barely covers the ears.
Bring the water to a boil. Add butter and milk.
You can also add salt and sugar if desired. I use salted butter and add only a token pinch of salt to the water. Sugar - to taste and circumstances. If you suspect your corn is less than ideal, the added sugar during boiling will help improve the flavor, or simply accentuate the natural sweetness unless urgent action is needed. I add a pinch just in case.
Place the ears in the water with milk and butter.
Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 6-8 minutes.
Corn boiled with milk and butter is ready! You can serve!
The corn turns out to be very tender, sweet-salty and creamy in taste.
The water in which the corn was boiled can be chilled, frozen, and reused.

Important additions to the recipe
Pay attention to the fact that not just young, but food, i.e. sweet corn. Fodder corn, which sellers strive to pass off as sugar corn because of its youth, does take longer to cook. Signs of young sweet corn are whitish tendrils at the end of the ear, pale yellow color, perfectly even rows of kernels. Also, if you cut a grain, a milky juice will flow out.
