Corn On The Cob created by Jonathan Melendez

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

    Full disclosure - I haven't tried this recipe yet. I do cook my corn on the cob in water, salt, sugar, butter and milk. I don't measure and I only have two ears to cook but a dash of this and a bit of that and the corn is wonderful. But - I've never added red pepper flakes. That sounds genius! Can't wait for corn season to try it. Corn cooked this way doesn't need anything else added. I eat my corn plain - no added butter or salt.

    Loved this way of cooking corn on the cob. The milk and butter really gives it a great flavor. It all worked so well!
