Simply melt some butter on the stove and chop up some fresh basil. (yes, that's right I said fresh... no dried flakes this time of year, the herb garden is full of it, so why not use it up.) Be sure to chop your basil as fine as possible and then add it to your butter. Stir it around, and reduce the heat and leave it on the stove for a couple of minutes so the flavors have time to seep in.
Then place on the table so your guests can spread the basil butter on their ears in the amount they desire.
And for any leftovers, simply cut the kernels off the hear, place in a bowl and pour the remaining basil butter on top. Cover and place in the fridge and you will have great tasting leftovers.
