(originally made 6/2011)
I've become addicted to Foodgawker. At one point I had over 600 items
in my favorites, and I've found so many wonderful blogs and
recipes. Found this simple recipe on one of my morning blogwalks,
and threw it together to have with grilled hot dogs yesterday. I
totally cheated and added the chopped jalapeno and garlic to the butter
and melted it in the microwave. I used my trusty corn stripper to
make short work of removing the kernels :) This was simple and
delicious. You could also add the ingredients to softened butter,
form it into logs and freeze so that you have it ready to go, I plan on
doing that for our upcoming vacation!
I found this on the Life's
Ambrosia blog, this is my 2nd or 3rd winner from there, and I've barely
made a dent in checking out all the recipes on the site. :)
Definitely go check it out!

Once corn has cooled enough to handle it, remove the
aluminum foil. Holding the corn upright, use a sharp knife to cut the
kernels from the cob. (Note: I would do this into a bowl so you don’t
have kernals flying everywhere. I learned the hard way). Once all of the
kernels are cut from the cob, toss them with the butter mixture.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
