Corn on the cob has been a family favorite for years in our house. We grew it ourselves for years & now get it from farm friends. Tender, freshly picked homegrown is the BEST!
Ready to store in the refrigerator... Seal bag with a twist tie.
I dump the husks into my compost bin.
To husk, pull most of the silk along with greens.
Molly gets the small tip tops.
I always put SUGAR, not salt in the pot to cook cobs. Salt makes it tough. Sugar enhances its sweet flavor! (1-2 tsps)
Bring JUST to boil.... Then remove and cover. Do not boil.
Keep covered in hot water. Serve hot.
We picked up this handy corn butter-er. You press plastic piece to slide butter out.
Great summer meal from our garden! See my guide for how to make these Stuffed Zucchini Boats.
This bi-color corn, fresh from the garden, with butter and salt tastes wonderful!
We used to let Molly eat a warm stripped cob and she loves them but a vet warned us, (& I Googled it further)that corn cobs are dangerous potentially for obstructing their digestive tract!
