Corn #1. Butter or no? Binds salt.

CornFresh corn from Munson Farms is here in a big way, and I brought a few ears straight home for an early lunch. Some say that fresh corn needs nothing, no cooking, no salt, and no butter. I disagree, and prefer to boil corn in heavily salted water for 5-7 minutes then add a light coat of butter and a generous sprinkling of kosher salt.

The salt is the key, and the butter holds just the right amount in place. With great corn, and Munson’s certainly is, it’s sheer perfection.
