- 6 ears fresh corn on the cob with husks and silks removed
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 4 quarts water

Fill a large stockpot with enough water to cover the ears of corn.

Once the water is boiling, carefully add the ears of corn to the pot.
Boil the corn for 5-7 minutes until they are tender.
Remove the corn from the pot using tongs or a pair of kitchen mitts.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan and drizzle it over the cooked corn.
