This is how my Granny taught me to boil corn old school trick. Water, milk, sugar, salt and a whole stick of butter and it comes out nice and sweet and juicy… Does anyone else do this or is just my family? Since so many are asking. The measurements are 1 cup of milk, 1 stick of butter and 1/4 cup of sugar 1-2 tsp. Of salt. Bring to a boil and boil 10 min.
