In many homes, corn on the cob is a food staple during the summer months, and there are several different types of corn that appeal to a variety of taste buds. Corn can be prepared in an assortment of ways, from boiling it on the stovetop to grilling it to roasting it in the oven, just to name a few, and each way develops the flavor profile differently. These 30 blog entries will give you directions on how to cook your corn on the cob, as well as some creative recipes that include this summer staple.
Native Americans were the first to eat sweet corn on the cob, and they preferred two different cooking methods: boiling and roasting. Take a look at these six blog articles, which explain how to boil your corn to perfection and what to cook alongside it.

On the Grill
Corn can be grilled several different ways. You can soak the ears while still in the husks and put the corn right on the grill with no cleaning necessary. Or you can shuck the corn, add butter and spices and wrap the ears in foil before grilling. For more grilling ideas, read the next six blog posts.

In the Oven
One of the easiest ways to cook corn on the cob is to take the ears, husks and all, and put them in the oven. Once cooked, the silks and husks come off easily. Another way to roast corn in the oven is to take the cleaned cobs and add butter and spices and wrap them separately in foil before cooking. This is a clever way to achieve a similar flavor to grilling if the weather isn’t right for cooking the corn on the grill. Check out the recipes on these six blog entries for more oven-roasted corn on the cob ideas.

In the Crock Pot
The crockpot comes to the rescue again when it comes to easy corn preparation. Similar to how you would make baked potatoes in a crockpot, the corn needs to be shucked and cleaned and then wrapped in foil before putting it into the crock pot. It only takes about four hours on low to cook the corn to perfection. Since you are wrapping the corn in foil anyway, you may as well add some butter and herbs to the foil packet to ramp up the flavor.
