Tired of chasing fast-melting butter around your plate? There are new and improved ways to butter your corn on the cob! You will need:

Butter
Corn
A piece of bread
A Ramekin
A pastry brush
A pot of boiling water
An empty, sanitized deodorant stick
And a butterer

Optional:

Jar of boiling water
and a butter roll-on gadget

Step 1 – Take a slice of bread, generously butter it, and wrap it around a cob. A heel of bread works best.

Step 2 – Pour melted butter into a ramekin or small dish, and use a pastry brush to dress your corn with it.

Step 3 – Cook the ears in a pot of boiling water. Shortly before they’re done, add a stick of butter to the water. The butter will float to the top, coating each ear as you lift it out of the pot. If you’re grilling the corn, achieve the same effect by pulling down the husks when the corn is done and, holding each ear by its husk, plunging it into a jar of hot water into which you’ve melted a stick of butter.

Step 4 – Unwrap a stick of butter, put it on a plate, and rotate each ear of corn on top of the butter.

Step 5 – If you enjoy a good do-it-yourself-project, take apart an empty deodorant stick, wash it thoroughly, shove a stick of softened butter where the deodorant used to be, and chill it in the fridge. Voila! A butter roll-on that’s perfect for corn on the cob! Just be sure to label it, so you don’t end up with buttery armpits. If you don’t want to make a butter roll-on, there are similar gadgets on the market that you just fill with a stick of butter and rub over your corn.

Step 6 – Use an old-fashioned utensil known as a corn on the cob butterer, which is a regular utensil handle attached to a square that’s just larger than a pat of butter. Put butter in it and glide it across the cob

Did you know? In some parts of Europe, corn on the cob is considered “pig food” that’s unfit for human consumption!
