What's an easy way to butter corn on the cob? Some food tips achieve genius level, and this is one of them. Bonnie tells us a simple scientific method to butter corn on the cob. You'll need a wide-mouth jar tall enough to submerge a single ear of corn. Fill the jar 3/4 full of hot water, and pour melted butter on top of the water. The butter will rise to the top (oil and water don't mix easily). Steam, grill or otherwise cook corn on the cob with the leaves on. When ready to butter, peel back the leaves, but don't remove them. Use the leaves as a handle, dip the corn in the jar, and as you remove it, it gets a nice coating of butter. Great tip, Bonnie!

I tried this tonight. Couldn’t believe how well it worked! Great idea. (Filled the jar too full, though.)
