Best Way To Make Corn On the Cob

Start with fresh corn on the cob. Look for bright green husks and plump kernels.

1. Freshness Matters

Boiling corn is classic. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the corn for 5-7 minutes for crisp-tender perfection.

2. Boiling Bliss

Steaming retains the corn's natural sweetness. Steam for 7-10 minutes until tender.

3. Steaming Success

Grilled corn is a flavor explosion. Grill with the husks on for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally.

4. Grilling Greatness

Microwave corn for a quick fix. Place in a microwave-safe dish, cover with a damp paper towel, and heat for 2-4 minutes.

5. Microwave Magic

Enhance flavor with seasoned butter, herbs, or a sprinkle of chili powder.

6. Seasoning Secrets

Add a dusting of Parmesan cheese for a savory twist.

7. Parmesan Perfection

Try "elote" with mayo, cotija cheese, and chili powder for a Mexican-inspired treat.

8. Mexican Street Corn

Mix honey and butter for a sweet and creamy topping.

9. Honey Butter Heaven

Wrap corn with bacon strips and grill for a smoky, indulgent treat.
