I always seem to want sweet corn when it's not in season, and sometimes the canned sweet corn has a funky flavor. Now you can have quick sweet corn all year round! Using real salted butter makes a huge difference in this case. Tastes just like in-season corn on the cob.

I have been cooking corn like this for years but I do it in the microwave. Do not do with plastic in the microwave use glass or ceramic that can stand higher heats. Melt butter in microwave in glass container add sugar heat again. (Microwaves vary too much to put exact times so you just have to watch it until you know your microwave.) Add corn and cook until heated through. Do not overcook. Best canned corn I have ever found is Walmart brand yellow corn no salt added. Better than anyone else's canned or frozen corn! I also add a touch of garlic powder but I love garlic. Read More
