How To Cook Corn On The Cob

Summer is here and time for BBQ'S, PICNICS, and CORN ON THE COB. We love to get together as a family and enjoy each other with all the summertime fun.
Farmer's Markets are a great place to find Corn On The Cob. There was a farmer when I lived in Oregon that sold it right from his field. Freshly picked corn is the best corn you will ever taste.
I remember taking my electric knife and cutting the corn kernels off and freezing them. You have to boil them for a few minutes first but you have fresh corn to use anytime you need it.
There are so many ways to cook corn on the cob. We like cooking it in water, milk, butter and sugar. It comes out so sweet and juicy everyone asks for seconds. You are going to love this SCRUMPTIOUS CORN.
