An easy way to butter your corn on the cob is to use a slice of buttered bread.
By mamacrafter from TN
My family loves corn on the cob. They all complain about buttering their corn, even with the new squirt butter, which I did not like to buy since it rather pricey! I buy the aluminum throw away pans when they are on sale and use one to butter the corn. Melt butter in the throw away aluminum pan plus add any seasoning you like, salt, pepper, etc. Place ears of steamed corn in the melted butter and use tongs to turn each ear of corn until buttered, serve in the aluminum pan. It is also a great way to carry the cooked corn if, you are taking to another location. Once you are finished with serving, you can simply wash the aluminum pan and use the next time.

With summer coming, corn-on-the-cob is a great favorite of ours. To avoid mess, and waste, we use a piece of bread to butter ours. Just put a pat of butter on the slice, twirl your corn, and pass it along!
