Multiple Blue Rings

Indulge in the simple pleasures of summer with this classic buttered fresh corn on the cob recipe. Bursting with sweetness and rich buttery flavor.

Introduction

Arrow

Choose fresh ears of corn with bright green husks and plump kernels. Look for corn that feels firm and has silky, golden tassels.

Selecting the Corn

Arrow

Peel back the husks of each ear of corn, but leave them attached at the base. Remove the silk (corn hair) by hand or using a soft brush, ensuring the kernels are clean.

Preparing the Corn

Arrow

In a small saucepan, melt unsalted butter over low heat. Add a pinch of salt and any desired seasonings, such as garlic powder, paprika, or fresh herbs, to infuse the butter with flavor.

Butter Mixture

Arrow

Decide whether you prefer to grill or boil your corn on the cob. Grilling adds a smoky flavor and charred appearance, while boiling is a quick and easy method.

Grilling or Boiling

Arrow

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the prepared corn on the grill grates and cook for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the kernels are tender and lightly charred.

Grilling Method

Arrow

Alternatively, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the prepared corn and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the kernels are tender but still crisp. Drain the corn and pat dry with paper towels.

Boiling Method

Arrow

Once the corn is cooked, use a brush or spoon to generously coat each ear of corn with the melted butter mixture. Ensure that the butter is evenly distributed over the entire surface of the corn.

Buttering the Corn

Arrow

Sprinkle the buttered corn with additional salt, pepper, or your favorite seasonings to taste. Freshly ground black pepper and chopped parsley make excellent garnishes.
