Place the butter in a bowl and beat until light. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except corn. Cover and refrigerate the butter until needed. When ready to serve, cook the corn in boiling water 2 to 3 minutes, and then plate and allow diners to slather it with the butter to taste.
Recipe options: Instead of boiling the corn, grill it and then slather it with the butter. To do so, remove most of the outer leaves on each cob, leaving a thin protective shell of leaves. Now pull back those remaining leaves on each cob, being careful that they still remain attached. Now remove the corn's hair-like silk. Put the leaves you pulled back into their original position; don't worry if some of the cob is unprotected. Soak the corn in cold water for 10 minutes. Grill the corn on the barbecue over medium heat with the lid closed for 10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until tender and nicely charred.
