Add These Secret Ingredients for the Best Corn on the Cob You’ve Ever Tasted

You won’t believe the difference it makes!

The simple trick for cooking corn on the cob

It’s summer, which means it’s the best time of year to eat some delicious corn on the cob. If you’re having a barbecue, you might be making some grilled corn (and you should try one of our tasty topping recipes). But if you’re in the mood for traditional boiled corn on the cob, you’ll want to check out this corn “upgrade” from TipHero. You won’t believe the difference it’ll make—and all it takes is two simple ingredients.

When the water is boiling, add some milk and butter to the pot before adding the corn. (TipHero recommends one cup of milk and one stick of butter.) It’ll make the corn sweeter and more flavourful—and it allows you to skip a step, too. Because of the butter from the pot, the corn will already have a nice buttery taste. So instead of taking the time to slather the cob with a pat of butter, you can dive right in and take a bite.

The whole process takes only 13 minutes from start to finish. Check out the full recipe on TipHero. It’s hardly more than a simple tweak to the way you usually cook corn, and we promise you’ll never go back! TipHero recommends sprinkling the corn with salt or pepper for the ultimate taste. Bon appétit!

Round out your dinner with one of these easy summer dessert recipes!
