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!
