This Milk Butter Boiled Corn on the Cob is the finest corn on the cob you’ll ever taste, because it’s so soft and tender!

TO MAKE YOUR MILK BUTTER BOILED CORN ON THE COB

Fill a large stockpot halfway with fresh shucked corn on the cob, then add just enough water to cover the ears. Bring the heavy cream, milk, 14 tablespoons butter, and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce to a low heat and continue to cook for another 8-10 minutes, or until the corn is soft. *You can wait until the contents of the stockpot are boiling before gently placing the ears of corn in, but I prefer to toss everything in at once.

Remove the cooked corn and liquid from the stockpot. If preferred, top with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter mixed with the paprika. With a basting brush, brush the melted butter and paprika onto the cooked corn on the cob.

Serve right now, or keep warm in an airtight container until ready to serve. Enjoy!

WHY WOULD I BOIL CORN IN MILK?

Boiling your corn in milk brings out the sweetness of the corn, which is especially true of sweet corn. When sugar is added to the water and milk combination, the effect is amplified even more.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY CORN IS DONE?

Boiled corn is extremely hot, and if picked up with tongs, it will quickly dry out. From a beautiful, hot cooked piece of corn on the cob, the moisture should evaporate in seconds.

The corn should be ready in 5 minutes when cooked at a boil. When your corn has been brought to a boil and then simmered for 8 to 10 minutes, it should be done. At the eight-minute mark, I always remove my corn from the fire ( even if it takes me a minute or two to get it on to plates ).

CAN I LEAVE BOILED CORN IN WATER (OR MILK AND BUTTER)?

Corn can be left in water, or a mixture of water and milk, for up to 10 minutes after it has been cooked. If you leave your cooked corn in the pan for longer than 10 minutes, it will become overcooked. After that, your corn will begin to lose both flavor and the plump corn kernel texture that you seek.

CAN I REUSE THE LEFTOVER CORN MILK BROTH?

Don’t like wasting food or throwing away perfectly nice broth? Neither do I.
This broth can be saved and frozen for later use in soups, chowders, or cornbread.

HOW TO BOIL CORN IN MILK

  • In a large pot, combine the water, milk, unsalted butter, and salt. Bring to a boil.
  • Toss the fresh sweet corn husks into the boiling water, or use corn that has already been shucked.
  • Allow 10-12 minutes for the corn to cook before removing and serving

HOW LONG IS IT GOOD?

Serve: Because of the butter and milk in the recipe, the ears of corn should not be left out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
Store: leftovers in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Freeze: your boiling corn once it has cooled down to keep it fresh for up to a year.

CORN FACTS

  • Corn is made from a grass called teosinte, and the edible section of the plant used to be approximately the size of your thumb.
  • Although it is commonly referred to as corn in the United States, the rest of the globe and current scientists prefer the term maize. What is the reason for this? Because maize refers to a distinct plant, and corn has been used to refer to a variety of grains over the years, it’s difficult to know what everyone is talking about.
  • When you cook an ear of corn, you may believe you’re eating the fruit, but you’re actually eating the bloom. Corn husks are the flower’s petals, which is why they’re so simple to work with.

Why boil corn on the cob with milk?

Boiling your corn in milk brings out the sweetness of the corn, which is especially true of sweet corn. When sugar is added to the water and milk combination, the effect is amplified even more.

How many minutes do you boil corn on the cob?

Toss the corn into a big pot of boiling water. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the corn is soft and bright yellow, stirring occasionally to ensure the corn is submerged.

Why shouldn’t you boil corn?

The starches inside the kernels of undercooked maize are raw and taste chalky. When the corn hits 150 degrees, the starches begin to gelatinize and the texture becomes silkier. When corn is heated above 170 degrees, the pectin that gives the kernels their structure begins to break down, resulting in mushy corn.

How can you tell when corn on the cob is done?

When it comes to cooked corn on the cob, how can you know when it’s done? The yellow hue of the corn on the cob intensifies after it is fully cooked. The kernels have plumped up and become more sensitive. Prick a kernel with the tip of a sharp knife to see if it’s good.

What is the healthiest way to cook corn on the cob?

Boiling corn on the cob is the healthiest way to prepare it. Instead of using butter to season it, use herbs or citrus juice.
