How to Make Corn On the Cob with Garlic-Ancho Butter

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak chile in warm water in a 1-cup glass measure until softened, about 30 minutes, then drain.
  2. Finely chop cilantro and garlic together in a food processor.
  3. Add chile, lime juice, sugar, and salt, then process until finely chopped.
  4. Add butter and blend until smooth, then spoon into a ramekin.
  5. Cook corn in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer with tongs to a platter and serve with butter.
  6. Note:
    Garlic-ancho butter keeps, tightly covered and chilled, 1 week.
  7. Tip:
    Slightly melt the butter before adding all the ingredients. Then let it sit in the frig to firm back up. Makes mixing the lime much easier.
