Fresh Corn With Thyme Butter

Yields 8 half ears of corn. Recipe is by Teresa B. Day.

4 ears corn, husked

2 teaspoons salt, divided

1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1. Cut corn cobs in half. Place in a stock pot and cover with water. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil and let cook for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, melt butter and chop fresh thyme. Whisk in the thyme, 1 teaspoon of salt, pepper and garlic. Drain the corn from the water, then brush on the melted butter.
