chive and garlic butter 1It’s sweet corn season here in Iowa, and boy have I been eating my share of corn.  My sister and her husband grew a small patch of sweet corn on their farm leaving us with an incredible amount to eat and freeze.  Last week we had sweet corn for supper two times and we froze bags of sweet corn all day on Friday.  After having sweet corn so many times last week, I decided to find a way to spice it up. 

chive and garlic butter 5Knowing that I have a wonderful chive plant by my back door I thought I would combine its light flavor with the buttery corn for a perfect combination.  I decided to include garlic salt to add just a splash of garlic buttery flavor needed to excite my taste buds.  This butter is amazing on corn as well as bread, shrimp, and fish.

So let’s get started!  The first thing you need to do is let the 1 stick of butter (1/2 of a cup) set out until it’s softened.

Now set the butter to the side and cook your sweet corn.  In a pot of boiling salted water cook the corn until tender for 6 to 8 minutes. Then drain and serve with butter.
