    Best method of boiling corn I've come across. I used your method of sugar, lemon juice, to the boiling water. I did not use the seasoning, because the family likes only melted butter. Son commented best tasting he's ever had. I experienced how easy the kernels released from the cob while eating it, yet the kernels were a perfect texture. Thank you so much for this.

    We liked this spicy butter very much and will be using it this summer on our corn. Thanks for posting.

    We really liked this recipe. A very different spin on regular old corn on the cob. Will definitely make this again and again.

    When our summer garden comes in, we eat a lot of corn. Your boiling method of cooking corn is fabulous. The corn is perfectly tender and sweet. As you say, for a change from plain corn, the herb-spice butter pairs wonderfully with the sweet tender corn. My family and I loved this and will enjoy it all summer long. Thanks, Leezah.

    My family loved this! I used 1 tsp dried parsley as I didn't have any fresh. Thank you for sharing!! Great flavor!
