How to butter corn
A group at work gave my husband a Smart Living corn butter spreader yesterday. They said it was because they had read about his corn buttering habits in the paper, but I don't believe it.
I've never written about them. He must have told. His family of origin had the nasty habit of running the corn directly over the stick of butter, something we don't do in my house. So they give him this...thing.
You put the stick of butter in it and there's a sort of plunger effect.
I went on line hoping to find a photo of it so I wouldn't have to bother, but I couldn't find one. I did get this interesting patent information, however. ...
The proper way to butter corn on the cob is to put a pat of butter on your plate and then spread it on your corn. It isn't rocket science.
However, my husband told me that one of the group said that in his or her family they buttered bread and used that to butter the corn. Then they ate the bread.
Getting enough carbs there?
The other problem with this corn butter spreader, besides wasting a stick of butter, is it's such a "guy" butter spreader, if you get my drift.
