Helping hands to hold your corn cobs

Corn holders are shaped like cute little people in summer attire

Sur la table

The only time I crave corn on the cob is during the summer. Don't get me wrong, I still love a nice warm corn chowder in the winter: I just wait for the warmer weather to eat cobs of corn. As far as I'm concerned, cooking corn cobs right on the grill is the only way to do it.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who draws this connection between the warmer months and our favorite husked vegetable, as evidenced by these cute little Barbecue Folk cob holders. Each one is shaped like a different character dressed in summer attire. Two men and two women, complete with sunglasses, hats, and colorful clothing add sense of humor to your backyard barbecue as well as protect your hands from butter.

The Barbecue Folk corn holders are available from Sur la table for $11.95.
