I loved this corn! I only cooked 2 ears and it came out perfect. I served it with sauteed prawns and a tossed salad for my dinner tonight. Yes, I ate both ears! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Pacific Islands.

Fresh summer corn is one of my favorite veggies, and this is a great way to prepare it. I really liked the flavor that the milk and sugar gave the corn. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
