5 Corn Recipes That Will Put Those Cobs to Good Use

June 29, 2011

I don't think I know anybody who doesn't like corn.  I get excited when I see the ears at the farm stand, waiting patiently in their husks for someone to pick them up.  When it is in season, the kernels are sweet yellow gems that pop in your mouth.  These five recipes show corn's versatility and offer a variety of ways to use this summer's bounty.

Corn Cakes
Good with eggs for breakfast or a bowl of chili for dinner.

Mexican Grilled Corn
A south-of-the-border twist on a favorite barbecue side dish.

Edamame and Red Pepper Succotash
An easy dish that can be made in minutes.

Crab and Corn Chowder
A luscious New England chowder that makes you feel as if your on the East coast.

Corn Salsa
A great condiment for tacos, grilled fish, or grilled chicken.
