Whether you’re eating at a fancy restaurant, cooking at home or firing up the grill at an outdoor barbecue, corn on the cob is a fan favorite food item. The healthy vegetable can be used as a delicious side to your main meals or as a tasty snack during the day.
What makes corn on the cob even better is that it’s so easy to prepare and serve. All you have to do is peel away the ears of corn and submerge it in a container of boiling water. Once the corn is cooked, drain the water and serve the corn on a plate with your choice of seasoning. Butter, pepper and a dash of salt are the most common things people add to their corn dishes.
While this method is delicious and quick, there’s one simple step you can incorporate to take your corn to the next level. The nifty trick was released by Your Nation News and the only thing you need (apart from your corn) is butter and milk. As the corn on the cob is cooking in the boiling water, pour a small amount of milk into the water and throw in a few slabs of butter.
When the water, milk and butter combine, the resulting mixture begins to soak into the corn kernels. Implementing this trick the next time you are cooking corn will give you creamy, rich and uniquely flavorsome corn. The butter added during the cooking process is usually more than enough richness for most people. However, feel free to add some more when it’s on your plate if you’re one of those people that can’t resist slathering your corn with butter.
This easy and delicious cooking tip has attracted a lot of attention online with budding cooks emphasizing the amazing difference in taste and flavor. Such was the level of interest that CBS New York aired a story on corn in their ‘Tip of the Day’ section.
