2. Pour the contents into your preferred skillet and heat it on medium heat. To cook it perfectly, don’t forget to stir it once in a while. A few seconds after it has boiled, turn off the heat.
3. Pour the cooked corns into your strainer and then drain it. It’s important to drain all the water if you want to retain its natural taste. The water from the can contains preservatives, so let’s just drain it off completely.
4. Using the same skillet, melt the butter and mix in the seasoning. You know, butter and corn are a perfect combination. They complement each other. Salt and pepper are basic seasonings too. But don't let this keep you from creating your own tasty twist!
