It’s so simple really… corn, sugar, butter, cream, milk and water. But the combination of those made for some very good corn 0n the cob. I’ll admit that it isn’t my absolute favorite recipe ever, but it really did spruce up the plain corn we would have had otherwise, and that made it worthwhile to me. The homemade butter from the other day was great on it too!
water, as needed to cover
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup butter
8 ears corn on the cob, husks and silks removed
Bring water to a boil in a large stock pot; stir in milk, sugar, cream, and butter until sugar dissolves and butter melts. Gently place ears of corn into the mixture and reduce heat to low. Simmer corn until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from the liquid with tongs and set aside under aluminum foil until serving time.
