CORN ON THE COB
If you want to uptick your corn on the cob experience, try this cinnamon – sugar – salt – animal-free butter spread!
Makes 1/2 cup spread
Cook your fresh corn on the cob any way you like: boil, steam, grill.
A half cup of spread equals one stick of margarine, which equals 8 tablespoons. Theoretically, that could smear 8 ears, but we both know that people usually use more than that. So you be the judge, depending on how many ears you anticipate, that you and/or your guests will eat.
1/2 c. margarine, at room temperature (I used Smart Balance Purely Better – a vegan product plus gluten-free)
2 T. powdered sugar
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in small bowl. Stir till smooth.
When corn is done, lift to plates and let guests apply their own ‘butter’.
I always put freshly ground black pepper on mine. But, since many people also like an additional injection of salt, then offering a salt mill with sea salt would be nice.
