Even if you don’t consider yourself a “veggie person,” chances are you like corn. Kids love it. Adults too and the best thing about corn is it’s cheap, filling and is readily available year-round in several forms. Of course, there’s nothing better than farm-fresh sweet corn in the summer though. Grilled corn on the cob slathered with butter and a smidge of salt…you could go through a pile of ears in one sitting and never tire of that treat.
But when fresh corn isn’t accessible throughout the fall and winter months, your go-to corn recipes can still be made using canned or frozen corn. Corn is great in soups and salsa, adds crunch and color in pasta and salads and is of course the star in corn chowder and cornbread.
In case you could use a few new corn dishes to rely on once prime corn season hits, we’ve got you covered with all the inspiration you need.
When is fresh corn in season?
Fresh, sweet corn is at its peak between the months of May and September and can be seen overflowing in baskets, bushels and crates at farmers’ markets around the country. And if you’re worried about where the best corn comes from, don’t be! Sweet corn grows in all 50 states.
