Cooking to the tune of the star-spangled banner and singing praises to good old fashioned corn!

Another 4th of July celebration food! Everybody at the camp enjoyed this variation and surely in no time there was nothing left.
Check out my other corn recipe:

Corn, the good old fashioned camp food, is always a must have at any outdoor occasion." It is better for the body and soul much more so than an inanimate vehicle with an energy efficient goal"! Where has all the good corn gone?
Compound butter :
1 stick unsalted European butter( softened)
1/4 c chopped red bell pepper
1/4 c cilantro chopped
1 red chili chopped( seeds removed)
1 t fresh lemon juice
1 t sweet pickle masala or sweet Hungarian paprika
1 t red bell pepper seeds with roasted garlic
salt to taste.
Mix all the ingredients together and roll up like a sausage in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready for use. Place slices of the compound butter with corn in foil on the hot coals. It takes about 40mins. OR you can boil the corn in salted water for 25 mins until tender, pour out the water and place back on stove top with a slice of the butter on each corn. Place lid on pot and just keep warm on low. The butter will melt and you will have steaming, buttery and flavorful corn.
