I have to laugh (at myself), as I never thought that there might be different (and more efficient) ways of buttering ears of corn! I always just grab a knife, slice off some butter, and chase melted butter around the ear. I guess that I am a lemming, as that is the way my parents did it and I just followed suit, never thinking that there might be "a better way." Thanks for sharing your tips.

Thumbs up

Here in Wisconsin when we get a big group together the corn comes right off the grill and it gets dunked in a coffee can filled half with water and half with butter. as you may not know butter floats on top of the water therefore you dont waste any butter. I have also used the bread and butter method.

I've used one of those things for years. It's great. It has a cap so you can just cover it and put it into the fridge for the next meal.

Actually, Constance mentioned it in her original post.

I put a pat of butter in my mouth then consume the corn like a human disposal......isn't that how everybody does it?

I love corn on the cob. I usually put a lot of butter on a plate and then roll the cob over it. I also have handles for each side of the cob so it doesn't get too messy.

Take a new stick from the refrigerator, peel back one end of the wrapper, hold stick by the other end, and rub the exposed end on the corn. My mother has one of the plastic things with the cap, and it works well, but I hate having something cluttering my drawer that has only one use.

The least-wasteful, best-tasting, easiest-to-clean-up system is the buttered-bread system. Corn with butter, buttered corn-y bread. What could be better?!

You lucky people you, by the way. We pay about 1 Euro per ear ...

(Who's going to start the poll for what direction you eat your corn in?!)
