Sweetened-Up Corn-on-the-Cob

I don't ever get tired of your typical salted and buttered corn on the cob-- sometimes I still pretend I'm Donald Duck and it's a typewriter. (You know just the scene I mean if you have seen that Dinsey cartoon- you've probably tried it yourself! :) There were a few years there with my braces that I just couldn't do corn-on-the-cob and it just about killed me. I love the mess- I even love the pieces that get stuck in your teeth. Just a couple hundred kernels of sunshine! Additionally... my Momma Stew showed me this little trick to sweeten it up and really smother that cob in butter, and I thought it was quite clever.

Sweetened-Up Corn-on-the-Cob
Corn, husked
1 cube butter
1 T sugar

Boil corn cobs for about2 minutes in a big pot of water. Melt 1 cube of butter in the oven in a 9x13 pan and stir in sugar until dissolved. Roll cobs in butter or drizzle over cooked and drained cobs. (It is so much easier to coat them and it gives it a yummy sweet flavor.)

How tasty! And have you ever tried them grilled? We have a friend who grilled corn on the cob and it was very delicious. Although I'm with you--I always like the old fashioned way best. (And the Donald Duck imitations :)
