Summertime is bursting at the seams with fresh produce. There are so many to options to choose from – watermelon, zucchini, berries, tomatoes – and it’s tough to pick a favorite. However, I can honestly say that fresh corn, straight from my favorite farmstand, easily makes it into the top five. Considering that I buy 13 ears of corn at a time (I can’t resist that baker’s dozen) for a family of four, I have to think and work fast to use up the fresh ears of corn.
As much as I love gnawing on sweet corn straight from the cob (boiled or grilled), sometimes it’s fun to shake things up a little. That’s when I start perusing some of my favorite blogs for ideas. I quickly discovered that there are a ton of great corn recipes out there, and it’s virtually impossible to give you the best. So, here’s a list of some that caught my eye.
