Mahrlig instructed that cooking corn with this recipe required filling a large pot with water, bringing the water to a boil, adding milk and salted butter, throwing in husked corn, reducing heat and simmering the corn.

Once it is done, the corn can be removed from the cooking liquid and it is ready to be served.

In her article published on Spicy Southern Kitchen, Mahrlig wrote that with this recipe, the corn cooks up flavorful, fresh tasting, and rich. And one does not require any additional butter to enjoy the recipe.

‘No need to slather butter all over the corn. This corn already has a buttery taste. Just a little salt and pepper and this corn on the cob is ready to go,’ she wrote in her article.

She informed her readers that some people also add sugar to the recipe. She has observed that if the corn is already sweet enough, it is not necessary to add additional sugar. However, one can still add sugar if they feel that their corn is lacking in flavor.
