• 4 ears of corn (shucked and cleaned- no getting out of this unless you can convince the kids)
  • 3 Tablespoons of soft butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Hot sauce, taco sauce, lemon pepper or whatever seasoning you desire.

Corn on the cob is such a symbol of Summer time food.  It is a great complement to just about anything grilled and it is perfect for eating outside.  Right now, is the time of year when the corn is at its best.  The kernels are tender and sweet.  It can be found at roadside stands, in huge bins at the grocery store, or better yet, in your own garden.

Corn on the cob in one of my favorite things to eat, but until recently, it was one of my least favorite things to make.  The shucking is a pain, but even boiling it and trying to remove it without burning yourself, and then trying to butter it while it hot often made it too much work, but now I’ve found a way to make buttery, flavorful, corn on the cob that is so easy, now I make it year round!

Mix together the butter and salt together in a small bowl.  If desired, stir in a couple drops of tabasco, or some other seasoning.  Using a paper towel to keep your hands clean, spread the butter mixture over each cob.  Place on a plate and microwave for 7-8 minutes until done.  No need to butter or salt- it is ready to go!  You’ll be surprised at how easy and delicious this recipe is!
