CORN ON THE COB

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.
