I've heard of all the other methods, but our family has always used the sway-backed butter method. You know the one. In the end there's a long channel down the stick of butter on the dish. No one has ever objected to using the remaining goofy-shaped stick of butter for toast or anything else.

IMO it hardly matters how the butter gets there. Fresh sweet corn is pure heaven any way it's buttered.

I have tried all methods but the (butter on bread one). I still like to have a bowl of soften butter, take a plastic sandwich bag lay it ontop of the butter--as ppl get there corn--they stick their hand in the bag, grab some butter and roll the corn around---- yum ! Then when everyone is finished - throw bag away ! (we've used waxed paper too)

For years, our family would spread butter on the corn on the cob with a knife.

I always sat there at the table wondering why the heck there wasn't a better way to do it, since everyone's butter just slid of the corn onto the plate.

Then, in my teens I think, my Mother began putting a small dish of melted butter and a pastry brush on the table. But by the time you finished spreading melted butter on the corn on the cob, it had all dripped onto the plate. So I'd wait patiently for everyone to be finished with the butter and I'd just keep buttering my corn on the cob until I was finished eating it. Yeah I know, that's like double dipping, but I always thought this method should thrown out.

I still eat dinner with my family on weekends, and like someone else in this thread said, my Mother (finally ) bought the gadget that holds a stick of butter and this is by far the best method yet.

Usually I cut the corn off the cob. I had braces on my teeth when I was younger and because of that I hate corn in my teeth.

Before that I used a fork.
