You can put amazing flavors on corn. Here are a couple of ways to butter up sweet corn beyond the basics:
Beat ½ cup butter (softened), 1 tablespoon of parsley, finely chopped; ½ teaspoon of lemon zest; 1½ teaspoons lemon juice and ¼ teaspoon of sugar. Combine well with a mixer or food processor. Chill, then bring to room temperature and serve with ears of corn. We recommend, as pictured, grilled corn.)
Hot Chili Butter
Beat ½ cup butter; 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese; fresh serrano or jalapeño chili pepper, minced and seeded to taste; 1½ teaspoons lime juice; ¼ teaspoon chili powder. Combine well with a mixer or food processor. Chill to blend flavors, then bring back to room temperature and serve with ears of corn.
