A Better Way to Butter Corn



We just love to eat corn on the cob every summer. We have it at least once a week while it is in season. And so every summer, I'm so happy I've learned a trick that makes buttering an ear of corn super easy, and also fun for the kids without being messy.

Here's how it works:

  1. Generously butter a piece of bread.
  2. Wrap the slice of bread around a hot ear of corn and slide it all over. The butter will melt off the bread and onto the corn.
  3. Eat and enjoy delicious buttery corn, and a piece of bread that now is slightly sweetened from the corn. No messy hands or dripping butter. Works every time!

Good idea, Kate. You could also save the wrappers from your sticks of butter and use them on your ears of corn.

Interesting tip! I haven't heard of doing it that way before.

I have a Pampered Chef corn butterer that we use. :)

Wow! I never would have thought of that! Great tip!

What a great idea! We used to have a "corn butterer," but somebody left it too close to the pot when boiling the corn and melted it. I'm not saying who ;)

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
