Summer Corn 2 Ways


Preparation15 minutes
Cook time45 minutes
ServingsMakes 8 of each


    Boiled Corn:
  • 8 Ears of Corn, shucked
  • 2 cups of Whole Milk
  • 4 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tbsp of Sugar
  • Plenty of Salt
  • For the Grilled Corn:
  • 8 Ears of Corn, still covered in the husk
  • Plenty of Salt
  • 1 Tbsp of Sugar


    1) To make the corn, fill a large pot about half way up with water, add the milk, sugar and salt along with the corn, bring to a boil, lower the heat and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes or longer if you like your corn cooked longer or less if you prefer it with a crunch.

    2) For the grilled corn, fill a vessel large enough to hold the corn with water, add the salt and sugar, make sure the corn is submerged in the water (I add a plate with a can on top of the corn just to make sure it's fully under the water) allow it to soak for a few hours, then grill on a hot grill for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the outside of the corn is well charred.
