Corn on the Cob with Basil Butter | Summer Party Menu | Grilling and Outdoor Summer Party


Sweet corn season is here.  When I was younger, that meant my sister and I would pick dozens of ears and set up our Sweet Corn Stand in the front yard to make money we could take on vacation.  We would sit outside all day shucking corn and selling paper grocery bags full to anyone that stopped by with $4 or $5.  Our corn stand was always much more successful than our lemonade stand.  After all, it was hard to get anyone that was speeding down our country gravel road to stop for a $0.25 cup of lemonade.  But sweet corn, that was an easy sell.

Basil Butter for Corn on the Cob

1 stick of butter, softened
2 tablespoons of pesto (homemade is so easy - here is my recipe)
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 pinch of sugar

In a food processor or mixer, combine all of the ingredients together.  Serve at room temperature. 


This Basil Butter and Corn on the Cob would be a great addition to any Summer Entertaining Menu.  Here is a fresh Summer menu that is sure to please :

  1. That is the most beautiful burger I've ever seen, it's been a rare occasion for me to dive into one, and the basil butter, bringing up corn-on-a-cob to a gourmet level, and I love it.

    how did you keep your basil butter bright green? When I make it, it turns dark olive green.
