Corn Season is here! Happy dance, happy dance!!!!


Oh joy! Corn season is upon us. We've got too many favorite ways to eat it to count. Hot and buttery, of course. Amazingly delicious elote - grilled, slightly charred, slathered in creamy, spicy chile goodness. On the sweet site in puddingy cake, topped with juicy purple berries. As griddle cakes, the sweet kernels bursting in your mouth and blending with the slightly salty taste of butter and sweet maple syrup. Not as common, but no less delicious, fresh sweet corn ice cream topped with juicy peaches to get the full summer effect. Instead of offering you one recipe of our own this month, we've compiled a list of some of favorite ways to enjoy corn.
