We absolutely love this, we tend to get bored with 'plain' corn on the cob after eating it all summer

We really liked this recipe. A very different spin on regular old corn on the cob. Will definitely make this again and again.

When our summer garden comes in, we eat a lot of corn. Your boiling method of cooking corn is fabulous. The corn is perfectly tender and sweet. As you say, for a change from plain corn, the herb-spice butter pairs wonderfully with the sweet tender corn. My family and I loved this and will enjoy it all summer long. Thanks, Leezah.
