    breezermom's Note:

    This herb-butter is delicious on steamed corn. The recipe calls for fresh corn on the cob, but I don't see why you couldn't use frozen! Prep time does not include the time to get the butter soft!

      Delish! I'm a huge fan of fresh corn on the cob and this did not disappoint! I was surprised how much I enjoyed the orange zest in the butter - it really added a zing factor. Thanks for sharing this simple recipe Breezer! Made for Photo Tag.

      I love corn even when it's plain. This herb butter is wonderful. It definitely boosts the flavor up a notch or two. Thanks for posting. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.
