    BeckyF's Note:

    When you add milk to the liquid in which you cook corn on the cob, it keeps the kernels from becoming bitter.

      Wow this was good!!! I was looking for a new way to cook corn on the cob- It was soooo sweet and tender. I cooked it for a little longer (10 min)- and only made 2 cobs of corn instead of 12. We will be having this again soon. Thanks so much for sharing!

      This was great! This would work good with corn that isn't so fresh and may have lost some of it's sweetness. I usually roast my corn on the grill, but my husband wasn't here to help me with it so I wanted a way to cook them on the stovetop. I left the butter out of the water and served it with the corn. Thanks!

      Corn on the cob , you should husk the corn not shuck the corn todays amazing sweet corns needs very little if you know when the corn is matured enough to be ripe and excellent . Some people grill it some people deep fry corn . I prefer boiling the corn and use salt pepper and brush with olive oil
