Corn on the Cob… Remixed

by zesty on August 24, 2012 · 1 comment

First of, my apologies for a slight disappearing act this week.

It was unintentional.

There was a little mix up in Zesty land and the days of the week but we got everything straightened out.  Whoo Hooo.

So it’s August.  That means fresh corn on the cob season.  That means zesty gets excited.  Seriously – excited.  One of my favorite tastes of the summer is fresh corn on the cob.  Whether boiled and lathered with butter or grilled and hot with flavor.  You name it – I love Corn.

I remember eating it every year and complaining about getting the kernels stuck in my teeth.  I would run up and floss my teeth as soon as I was done inhaling the cobs.  How many people eat their corn on the cob like a squirrel?  Do you go row by row or do you even have a method to your madness?

How many people cut it off the cob all the time? Anyone like grilled corn?  That is what I have for you today.  Three ways to turn corn up a notch – so high your kitchen will not know what hit it.

You ready?

I thought I would share with you 3 simple ways you can dynamically change the flavor of your next corn feast.  Do note that I assume your corn is grilled off and cooked at this point.

Topping 1 – All in good thyme

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1/2 Cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup chives, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp thyme, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. roasted garlic paste
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Tsp. Salt

Topping 2 – Maple Sensation

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. roasted ginger paste
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

Topping 3 – Parm Me Up

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh tarragon, chopped
  • 1/4 Tsp. pepper

Method for Each

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients, using the back of a spoon to combine.
  2. Scoop mixture into the center of a large piece of plastic wrap, fold edges over, roll into a log and seal tightly.
  3. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.  remove from fridge and let it warm to room temperature.
  4. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip:  Serve corn with one or all three of these butters.  Freeze leftover butter to use later on meat, fish, vegetables or of course bread.

Have a super Friday and an awesome weekend.

Take care
