Caribbean Boiled Corn

Caribbean boiled corn 

We heart corn and eat it all summer long! Growing up in the islands, corn was a Sunday staple. Even though the Caribbean corn  is harder and isn't of the  buttery sweet variety that summer corn here offers,  the flavours of all the spices infused into the water enhanced the flavour of the corn. There would never be any leftovers. When I saw this Caribbean Pot recipe with coconut milk(I'd never had it with that before), I knew I had to give it a try. 


4 ears of corn- broken in two. 

3 sprigs thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 can of coconut milk (about 1.5 cups)- totally optional but SO worth it.
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
2 cloves garlic of garlic (or 1 tbsp garlic powder)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
salt to taste


1- Add enough water to cover the corn. 
2- When the water is boiling, add all of the herbs and spices
3- Add the corn
4- Top off with coconut milk and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes until the corn is cooked. I usually use a fork to break off a kernel to test it.

I made this for company and we all loved it… some people even going back for seconds and third, saying that the broth that the corn boiled in was good enough to have as a soup on its own!
