Delicious Corn From a Bag (or Can)

This time of year really drives the point home- there is no corn as delicious as fresh from the cob! The months are getting cooler, however, and very soon fresh corn will not be available in most necks of the woods. Yummy root vegetables and citrus fruits will show up in abundance, but... what about when you feel like eating corn?

I have learned how to avoid chewy, tasteless frozen corn. It is so simple.

Do not boil your corn.

When you want fresh, crunchy, flavorful corn and you're relying on the frozen variety, here's how I recommend preparing it.

Melt 1-2 T of butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add corn (still frozen) to pan. Stir frequently until heated through. Season to taste with salt. (Psst- I sometimes add just a pinch of sugar too... it really brings out that corn flavor!)

That's it. Delicious corn year-round.

(If you're using a can instead of a bag, just drain your corn and add that to the melted butter!)

How do you cook your corn?
