This boiled corn on the cob is just as tasty as it is easy! Cooking corn in the husk keeps in the delicious sweet flavor, making for the perfect boiled corn (Bonus: boiling corn on the cob in the husk makes for gorgeous presentation!) Serve with aleppo and cayenne pepper flavored butter for extra flavor.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare Flavored Butter; set aside. Leaving husks intact, peel from tip of cob to base. Remove and discard any damaged or discolored outer husks. Thoroughly remove all silks from each ear of corn (a nubby kitchen towel rubbed briskly between rows of kernels makes easy work of this, Scott says). Rewrap husks around cobs, then tie ends with strips of husks or 100-percent-cotton kitchen string.
