Homestead Corn on the Cob

When I was growing up my family and I always looked forward to spring. The main reason was because of the delicious taste of corn on the cob. We had a local farmer, Whittle who grew some of the best tasting corn on the cob that I have ever had even to this day.

Well now that I have my own little homestead I am creating my own memories with some great tasting corn and this is by far one of the best recipes I have in my homestead cookbook.

You could add a bit of sugar to the mix but I feel with great home grown sweet corn you do not need to add any sugar.

Lets get to cooking!
