More than warm weather, poolside margaritas, and (necessary) mid-week ice cream runs, the thing I love most about summer is……CORN.
It’s at its sweetest, juiciest, most perfect, and I can pretty much get the.boy to eat anything if it has corn on it. (Even cabbage. FTW.) My devotion runs so deep that I’ve even devoted an entire Pinterest board to it, which, in this day and age, pretty much signifies real, true love.
I grew up eating plain steamed or grilled corn, and though there’s nothing wrong with either of those, there is really so much more that you can do with it, from soups to sandwiches to sweets! Here are 15 summertime sweet corn recipes that are perfect for using up this summer’s bounty and expanding our ever-loving corn horizons.
