How to Boil Frozen Corn on the Cob

Save

Frozen corn on the cob lets you enjoy a summer harvest treat year-round. Whether you bought corn already frozen or froze it yourself, you should boil it in a pot on the stove for the freshest taste, rather than in the microwave.

Tip

Boiling the Corn on the Cob

Fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. For a little extra flavor, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil or salted butter to the water as you boil it. Once the water comes to a boil, carefully add the corn cobs to the pot. Turn the heat down and then cook the corn for 3 to 5 minutes.

Serving Suggestions

The standby of butter, salt and pepper to season corn on the cob is a delicious option for a reason, but don't be afraid to branch out. Try making herb butters by melting butter and mixing in freshly chopped herbs such as chervil, rosemary, or dill. Chopped serrano peppers or red chili pepper flakes add a bit of zing. You can even get that grilled corn on the cob flavor quickly by seasoning the boiled corn on the cob and letting it cook on a grill for a couple minutes, just enough to lock in the seasonings.
