• 6 ears of corn, husks and silk removed
  • 1/2 cup of softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh chives finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt


  1. The first thing you need to do is let the 1 stick of butter (1/2 of a cup) set out until it's softened.
  2. Now finely chop 2 tablespoons of fresh chives.
  3. Mix the chives into the softened butter.
  4. Then add 1/4 tablespoon of garlic powder and 1/4 of a teaspoon of salt.
  5. Now set the butter to the side and cook your sweet corn. In a pot of boiling salted water cook the corn until tender for 6 to 8 minutes. Then drain and serve with butter.
