How do you cook corn in the best way possible???
The *very* best way is to not cook it at all. The *only* problem with that is butter won't melt on cold corn and salt won't stick. 1 to 2 minutes in boiling water will do the trick.

You won't find really good corn on the cob this of the year. Frozen off cob is decent alternative. Butter, a bit of water or stock, some black pepper is my go to for bagged frozen.
A more topical answer than mine certainly though you can apply the same principle to IQF (frozen) corn by thawing it very gently then rapidly bringing up the heat.
Agre with ChefOno - my grandfather used to have corn fields and there was nothing better than a freshly shucked cob of raw sweet corn.
Beyond that, butter + salt = heaven. Or in succotash. Or in chili. Or in black bean salsa. Or in cornbread.
