Super cool corn trick

This is not a recipe at all, but when I saw this at my bestie's house this weekend, I HAD to share.

Tis the season for corn on the cob.  But gosh darn it, corn is hard to butter isn't it?  The butter is so swishy sloshy, and even if you use one of those corn dish things, more melted butter ends up in the bottom of the dish than on your corn.

So, imagine my excitement upon learning this trick.  Imagine this: I'm standing there in my friend's kitchen, watching every thing get spread out for dinner, and someone cries, "Don't forget the buttered bread!"  At first I was confused as I watched them slather a thick layer of butter on a simple piece of sandwich bread.  This feast certainly did not warrant it.

Then someone explained to me that they use it to butter their corn!  Yes, you heard me right.  They use the butter bread to butter the corn.  You cradle the bread in your hand like you would a hot dog bun, and then twirl your corn cob around.

Genius!  You get so much butter on the corn it's ridiculous.  I was so impressed I had to spread the word.    Think it's weird?  Try it next time you have corn and then we'll see who's laughing.


  1. Hahaha love it! Too bad I cut my corn off. Speaking of corn... Can I request a recipe/blog fried corn??

  2. Wait you were at my house lol?

    I melt butter and brush it on with a brush. Sue was sooo impressed :)

    And Jac fried corn in mine and PJ's signature dish! With parmesan cheese. (Autocorrect tried to change it to Pharmacy cheese lol)
