Step 1: Use a piece of bread Take a slice of bread, generously butter it, and wrap it around a cob. A heel of bread works best. Step 2: Brush on melted butter Pour melted butter into a ramekin or small dish and use a pastry brush to dress your corn with it. Step 3: Pre-butter it in the pot 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. Tip If you're grilling your 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: Roll it in a stick of butter Unwrap a stick of butter, put it on a plate, and rotate each ear of corn on top of the butter. Step 5: Make a butter roll-on 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. Tip 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 a butter utensil 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!
