This side dish is crazy delicious and a perfect use for fresh from the farm corn or any fresh corn you hoarded during the summer and froze. Disclosure: I’m thrilled to announce this year I’ll be working with American Kitchen Cookware! I’ll be doing 10 different recipes on their blog this year and I’ll be sharing (well, teasing) each one here on Nutmeg Nanny! You’ll have to head on over to the American Kitchen blog to get the FULL recipe but it will 100% be worth it!

Ok, I know you’re probably looking at this thinking “Ummm it’s fall. Why are you showing me corn?” well I have a reason! Growing up we always grew our own sweet corn. That meant that we have a TON of corn and only 3 people to actually eat the corn. So we did what any normal person would do – we froze it. Did you know you could freeze corn on the cob? Well, you can! It’s simple – just blanch it, chill it and then freeze it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Or easy peasy corny cobby? <— Ugh. That’s worse. Don’t use that one!

The great thing about this recipe is that it can be made in the summer or winter. If you opt to make it in the fall or winter it’s basically like a little “Hey summer! I remember you and I want you to know that I miss you and I love you and I want you to come back.” PLUS who doesn’t love the combination of beer, butter, cilantro and citrus!

Instead of doing things the normal way I decided to steam my corn with beer water. Holy heck yes! Then I opted to slather each and every cob in a homemade honey cilantro citrus butter. You guys – if you’re not making your own flavored butter you need to get on that train! Oh, and you know how I’ve been working with American Kitchen Cookware this year? Well, I used their 8-quart stock pot to steam this corn and it was a perfect size! Plus you know how I LOVE my cool touch handles. I can never not mention how much I love them.

Wait. What?! This is genius. I've never cooked corn any other way than in the microwave (I know that's terrible to admit). I so have to try this!
