The Best Corn On The Cob

What is better in the summer than corn on the cob. Over the years I have cooked my corn so many different ways. I decided that I really wanted to prefect it so I did a search for the best way. OMG!!! You have to try this. I think the secret really is the stick of butter in the boiling. You really do not need any extra butter and I think it is so much less messy to eat. I cannot wait for you to try this!! Bon Appetit!!!
