sweet corn simmering in a butter bath

What's the secret to the most unbelievable corn on the cob? A butter bath!  Simmering corn on the cob in a bath of Dinner Bell Salted Butter, milk, & garlic makes for an easy, crowd-pleasing summer side. 

How to:

  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Once boiling, add milk, Dinner Bell Salted Butter, garlic, lemon juice, sugar, & salt. Bring the mixture back up to a simmer, letting the butter melt completely.
  2. Add the corn to the prepared butter bath. Adjust heat to maintain steady simmer. Simmer 8-10 minutes, until the corn is tender.
  3. Remove corn from the butter bath. Allow to cool slightly, then serve immediately with toppings & seasonings as desired – a little extra Dinner Bell Salted Butter, freshly grated parmesan, & finely chopped fresh chives or basil.
