Corn on the cob question!

Has anyone tried to boil your corn on the cob with water and chicken/vegetable stock so it gains more flavor?

If you have let me know, whether it failed or was good. I was thinking of trying this but want opinions.

I have both chicken broth and vegetable broth, not sure which to use.

  • I have never tried it, but I may the next time I cook it. I think I would go for the vegetable broth.

  • Want to try something even better? If you are baking or charcoaling, I butter the corn, sprinkle with Creole seasoning ( my favorite choice), wrap with foil. After baking or charcoaling (turn often for about 15 minutes), unwrap and sprinkle on Parmesan. Yummm

  • I use water and put in a little sugar. Brings out the natural sweetness of the corn.

  • lol sorry preggos...we still have corn in our grocery store so I grabbed some today. Really expensive though, 94 cents per ear of corn. Usually I get that for a few pounds. Im craving it too. Ever had it with Mayo, salt/pepper/ parmesan cheese?? Mmmm sooo good!

  • I never boil anymore after having it grilled. I blend butter with some lime juice and a little chili powder and spread on corn wrap it up with the husks and grill for about 10-15 min. keep turning until caramelized on all sides.

  • Why would you mask the delicious flavor of corn on the cob by adding the flavor of the broth. Add a 1/2 cup of milk , 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons sugar to the water, but only if the corn is not really fresh. If it's fresh, you shouldn't need anything..
