Flavoured Butters for Corn on the Cob

As corn season approaches here in Ontario, Canada, we look for the many ways to present corn.  Boiled, roasted, grilled, added to salads, as sides and so on, and so on….

The best way for me is slathering it down with butter, but not just any butter…flavoured butters.  Here are some simple recipes for making your corn pop with flavour this summer…

Lime Coriander Butter:

In small bowl, beat together 1/2 cup softened butter, 3 tbsp fresh lime juice, 2 tbsp chopped fresh Ontario Coriander, a pinch each of salt and pepper.
