Given how much I love butter and summer corn, you would think I would be somewhat of an expert on those topics which involve both ingredients. However, I am constantly learning new things about everything I pretend to be an expert on, and this is no exception. Luckily, my hunger for knowledge is insatiable (much like my hunger for other things).
This past weekend, I was enlightened to a genius corn-buttering scheme which saves you from being left with a gross, semi-melted, corn-silk-encrusted stick of butter that you never want to use for anything else.
All you do is place individual pats of butter on small rounds of baguette or tasty crackers for all of your guests. Each person uses the pat to butter their cob, and is left with a warm, buttery piece of bread to snack on. There are so many great things about this idea that I can't believe I haven't heard of it sooner. It makes me psyched to think of all the butter/corn innovations I have yet to discover. This is what makes it all worthwhile.
