If you want your corn on the cob to be full of flavor, there are two basic ingredients that you should consider adding to the pot you’re boiling the corn in — milk and butter. Many people swear by this tactic, and I’ve tried it myself a few times. The verdict? So yummy.

Before placing the corn in the pot, add about a cup of milk and a few tablespoons of butter to the boiling water. When the corn is done cooking (about 7-8 minutes), it will be packed full of delicious flavor. Easy enough, right?
