|Melted butter||1 Tablespoon|
Husk corn; remove silks.
Rinse each ear under cold running water; rub with hands or brush to remove remaining silks.
Cut off stems as close as possible to cobs.
Fill kettle 3/4 full with water; bring to boil.
Add corn, one ear at a time; bring water back to boil.
Reduce heat; cover.
Simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until corn is tender; drain.
Brush with butter; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Force a round, wooden toothpick or corn holders into ends of each ear of corn to serve.
