I’m not a huge fan of corn, I like an ear or two a summer and that’s about it. And since I am not a fan of salt and butter, it tends to be bland and boring. However, I felt adventurous tonight and made chive butter with Earth Balance. If you don’t like chives, add in another herb of choice. But the chives spread turned out so good.
We also went another route with cooking the corn. Normally we boil it in water – yawn. Instead we threw it on the grill to add a new dimension of flavor. I highly recommend jazzing up your butter next time you eat corn on the cob along with roasting it over the grill.
