WFMW: Buttering Corn on the Cob

Credit for this goes to my sister-in-law, Michon, who did this on the 4th of July.

If you use soft margarine or butter for buttering your corn on the cob, just use a small pastry or basting brush in the tub of margarine, and brush it on your corn. So much easier than a knife, and then you aren’t left with a weird, nasty, half-stick of melty butter when you’re done with dinner. Works for me!

  1. That IS a good idea! We are having corn tonight so I am going to try it. Thanks!

  2. Want an easier tip? Too bad, I’m giving it to you anyway. HA Take a hot dog bun, or a slice of bread, butter it generously and just roll your corn cob around. It works great and you get plenty of butter on your corn. YUMMY

  3. And a pastry brush would look so much more professional and hygenic than what we do—plunk down a new pound of straight-from-the-fridge butter and simply slide the cob side-to-side and roll it around. Total coverage. One billion grams of fat. The only rule is you CANNOT roll your cob if you’ve taken a bite already. We have some standards.

    I’m trying the pastry brush tonight. Thanks for the smart idea!

  4. my mom bought me a thingie where you put butter into it and you slide it across the corn. it’s rounded so the butter goes on the corn perfectly. good description, huh?

  5. Wow, that’s an awesome tip!
