Corn Butter: 3 Ways

Corn Butter


We are headed into the last stretch of summer – do you have plans for labor day?  Maybe a last big summer fling?  Corn on the cob is such a staple for summer parties and has always been my favorite.  I loved picking corn out of the field and seeing it on the table for dinner.  No matter how you fix it, grill it, boil it, bake it – these flavored Corn Butters will definitely turn that corn into a party!    I’ve included three that will spice up your fun!

This is so easy and so yummy.  Just mix in a few favorites – how about Cilantro and Lime, Cinnamon Chipotle or Spicy Honey Butter.   Why choose mix up all three for a corn station.   Be sure to make your butter at least an hour or two {even overnight} before serving to allow the flavors to mix and infuse.  It’s also worth buying good quality butter – no skimping here!   Finally,  I also recommend you serve any of these corn butters with some crumbled Cotija Cheese and a little extra chopped cilantro.  Now eat, and have fun!
