That’s Corny: 12 Corn Recipes That Will Shuck and A-maize You

 In Make, Tips & Tricks

This is the time to buy/ make/ eat corn. Why? Because it’s corn season baby! If you’re a simple corn on the cob fan, the simplest, most scrumpy play is to steam it. So shuck those ears of corn, put the cobs in a big pot, and pour in a couple inches of water. They’ll be done in 3-5 min. and you’ll know because the corn will be a gorgeous yellow color. Want more from your corn? Here you go:
