Corn on the Cob

What method do you use to get the butter on the corn?

because i have to butter a whole slew of ears.....i melt butter in a bowl and then use a pastry brush to just paint it on...or i can let the littles just paint the butter on.......soooooo much easier than using a slab of butter and a fork......

Half stick of butter on a little plate. Rub cob over butter until covered.

Currently I do like Jan, only I put a whole stick of butter on a plate because we like heavy buttered corn over here.

Every time I've been served corn on the cob by someone else it has always been a different method for buttering the thing. Each method has been just as effective.

Kelly, the paper towel trick is a new one to me. I've done a heavily buttered slice of bread then you cradle it around the corn and turn the cob. That is particularly yummy cuz then you have a yummy buttered slice of bread to eat. LOL

Love Colleen's pastry brush method. I've also had a melted dish of butter that you then just dunk the cob into.

SPray butter. I only buy it in the summer. Of course I'm the only one who likes butter on my corn so it's easier that way.

When I was a kid we had special corn batterers. You cut a pat of butter, and then rubbed it over the corn. Kind of Luke this but our was simpler, I think: http://www.amazon.com/Tupperware-Gadget-Corn-Butter-Hugger/dp/B004WX9L2Y/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1341853632&sr=8-9&keywords=corn+butterer

Depends on who is serving! DH puts butter on top and lets it melt into the serving dish, then you roll your cob before you take it. I put it on a plate and we roll the cob on the slab of butter. I have done the melted butter thing...but then I end up with a bunch of butter with bits of corn silk in it Wink

If we're grilling it we pull the husk part way back, remove the silk, butter, s/p, wrap the husk back up around and grill. If we're husking and boiling, then I either use my pampered chef corn butterer or put a half stick on a plat and roll them on it.

PJ may correct me, but I remember my mom putting butter in the boiling water. I usually just grab a butter knife and hope for the best...lol

I forgot about the pampered chef thingy. My sister had one before her house burned down. It's also great for buttering those yummy soft pretzels

I believe you did. Don't you remember the crazy story about my sister's house burning down the day of mother's funeral? That convo may have taken place during your hiatus after O was born.

Yeah maybe I was gone for a bit there ... seems vaguely familiar.

I wonder if you can have a online pampered chef "party" hmmmm

I roll thoroughly on a slab of butter and coat in salt.

MMmmmmmm. We have corn all the time in the summer. We're surrounded by cornfields in Ontario. Literally.

This is me, Deb! ROFL

Kelly, I really love a lot of the Pampered Chef gadgets that I have - knives, not so much, and that stoneware stuff...I've never gotten mine "seasoned"...best shower I had before I got married was a Pampered Chef shower - everybody came, we cooked, ate, and then they all ordered something for me off of my "wish list." It was awesome!!

Everyone should order a Pampered Chef whisk in both sizes if you don't have one. They are awesome. Make great gifts too. I am leaving this here and posting in BBB. This is the larger size: http://www.pamperedchef.com/ordering/prod_details.tpc?prodId=4076&words=whisk

This is a handy little mixer too: http://www.pamperedchef.com/ordering/prod_details.tpc?prodId=244&words=whisk

But back to your butter talk.

Jordan, I'm jealous of the corn around you. We buy a ton fresh in the summer time, but not worth it to grow in our backyard gardens because the deer eat it all.

My corn is growing nicely in the garden and now I cant wait for it to be ready.

I put it on the corn and spread it around and let it drip, then salt, then before I am ready to take a bite I roll it around on the butter on my plate. Lots of butter....YUM.

For those who like a little spice it's delicious with butter and cayenne pepper too. Yum!

If I'm feeling fancy, I put a stick of butter on a saucer and we rub the corn over the stick. If I'm feeling lazy, I cut a stick of butter in half and sort of peel back the paper a bit and then just rub it all over the corn. Usually I'm feeling lazy!!!
