Expert Tips for Making Corn on the Cob

An instant pot can be an essential item to make corn on the cob and other corn side dishes!

  • Fresh or frozen corn? Fresh corn is always better, but frozen is an easy alternative!
  • Should I boil the corn in milk? Boiling the corn in milk brings out the sweetness of the corn so if that’s what you’re looking for then this would be a good option!
  • What is cooler corn? Pouring boiling water in a cooler and keeping it there for 30 minutes is a different method and takes away the hassle of using a grill!
  • What spices go well with corn? Cheese, herbs and spices go best with corn. This can include cilantro, oregano, paprika, feta and parmesan cheese!
