Hot Butter Old Bay Corn on the Cob




Over the 4th of July holiday, the hubby and I went to his hometown of Baltimore, and every time we touch down in the city, we go to our favorite crab spot, LP steamer. I usually go straight to ordering the crab and not requesting a side dish. But this time, we brought the family to enjoy the crab. We were told we must try the sweet corn on the cob.


Well, I ordered it and was told by the waiter to sprinkle some old bay seasoning on top. Well, I did; it was the most fantastic-tasting corn I ever had. So as soon as I returned him, I went to the grocery store, purchased some corn, and made my version of the sweet corn on the corn with old bay seasoning. My recipe is a little different than the restaurants, but it is super easy to make, and it's an excellent dish for a bar B Que or pair with a nice chicken or steak dinner.


Steam Corn on the Cob in Husk is a special way to cook corn, but the results are worth it. The corn turns out sweet, delicious, and moist.




Corn on the Cob can be cooked in the microwave, boiled on the stove, or grilled with foil on. But following these easy methods results in the best corn you have ever eaten. It just a few extra steps and it will become your new favorite way of cooking it.


Corn in the husk is fresher than pre-husked corn.

Who knows when this corn was wrapped in plastic wrap :) Husks keep corn fresher? When I used to buy husked corn at the grocery store, it never tasted as fresh as the corn I husked myself.

When corn is cooked, the husk immediately slips off.

Now the cat is out of the bag: you just cooked the corn in its husk, and the husk comes off easily! Also, the cooked skin easily comes off in one piece, while raw skins always make a mess. Once you try this easy cooking method in the husk, you will never struggle with uncooked husking corn again! Once the corn on the cob is cooked, the husk slides right off – super easy!
