Southern Milk and Honey Corn on the Cob Collage

Southern Milk and Honey Corn on The Cob

  • 8 ears of non-GMO verified organic sweet corn
  • Water
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1-stick of unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons of organic honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Cajun Seasoning or more
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • freshly ground peppercorns
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • chopped parsley for garnish, optional

Directions 

  1. Remove the corn husks from the ears of corn, rinse well to remove any corn silk.
  2. You can cut the ears of corn to the desired size or leave the corn on the cob whole if desired at this time.
  3. Fill a large pot midway with water,  add the corn on the cob,  whole milk, heavy cream, unsalted butter, organic honey, Cajun seasoning, kosher salt, freshly ground peppercorns, and cayenne pepper, place on low heat to warm milk and melt butter.
  4. Slightly raise the heat under the large pot to low-medium heat, careful not to let corn boil, you will want to simmer the corn for about 10 minutes or so.
  5. Remove from the pot and serve while hot.

Note: I have a huge issue  with wasting  wonderful ingredients such as the juice from this wonderful Southern Milk and Honey Corn on The Cob recipe, so I tend to use it to make a perfect base for my corn and potato soup a day or so later by adding a roux, leftover corn that I cut off  the cob, diced potatoes, onions, parsley etc and it tastes delish. So don’t waste that yummy juice if you do not have to. Let me know your ideas for using the Southern Milk and Honey Corn on The Cob juice in the comment section!

      • Morning/afternoon Stella!
        You are so welcome. I am thrilled you enjoyed the recipe; you can adjust the Cajun seasoning to however you enjoy it. I actually downplayed it (Cajun seasoning) in the recipe posted here because I have been known to set a few families on fire with my love for Cajun Seasoning…oops lol. Thanks so much for the feedback!
        Hugs

  2. These look amazing, Im planning a BBQ soon and I was wondering if they can be kept warm in a steam tray, letting the corn sit in some left over juice to prevent drying.. I’ll most likely make enough for 30 plus people.. do you think i should boil them for less time , I don’t want mushy corn by the time we all eat…
    thank you

    • I am so sorry was spending time with the family for the holidays and did not see this. You could do them a bit less and let sit in the juice. I would just keep it on warm and do not let sit out too long because of the dairy. I always get worried about things sitting too long.

      Hope you enjoy

  3. I’m not in the land flowing with milk & honey & fresh corn on the cob 😉
    Would this recipe work for frozen ears? Maybe just cook longer? Or at a higher temperature?

    • Hi, Toni, I am sure it would make the frozen corn taste much better at least. Fresh is better but hey if you can not access it let’s go for the next best thing by using an organic frozen version. I would not use a higher temp due to the dairy as it will curdle which will be pretty gross. Keep the temp te same and maybe lessen the cooking time since frozen corn is blanched.
      Let me know how it goes…

  4. This was amazing. My husband was so apprehensive & he really liked it! I used the leftover broth in this yummy Smoky Corn Chowder recipe from Real Simple In place of the broth. It was AMAZING!

  5. I wonder if you could use the liquid in cornbread, hush puppies, maybe even biscuits?? Have you tried that?

    This sounds delish and I am definitely trying it!

    Thank you!
