1. In a bowl or a food processor, combine the ingredients for each type of butter. Serve in separate bowls.

2. Note: These flavoured butters are always a hit. Serve them soft so they can be spread easily on the corn, either with a brush or a knife. The butters can also be moulded. Just roll them in plastic wrap and store in the freezer. Coins of the butters are delicious on broiled steaks or pork chops (tomato–basil), grilled asparagus (cheddar–bacon), with omelettes, on chicken breasts or a thick slice of salmon cut from the centre of the fillet (ginger–lime). You may find that women prefer the ginger–lime butter, while men tend to gravitate toward the more robust cheddar–bacon butter. Of course, at our last corn roast, all the butters disappeared!
