    This is good served on bread or vegetables.

    The corn butter will keep for about 3 to 5 days in the fridge.


  1. 8 ears fresh sweet corn, shucked


  1. Use a chef's knife to cut the kernels from each ear. 8 ears of corn will yield 4 to 5 cups of kernels.
  2. Scrape the back of your knife along the cob to get thejuice.
  3. Put the kernels in a blender or food processor and let the blender run on the highest speed for about 2 minutes.
  4. Pass the puree through a strainer with a rubber spatula.
  5. Pour the juice into a medium saucepan.
  6. Heat the juice over medium heat, whisking constantly. Continue whisking until the mixture begins to thicken and the frothy bubbles begin to disappear, about 4 minutes.
  7. Cook for about 30 seconds more.
  8. Remove from the heat.
