Ingredient Spotlight: Corn

on

Corn: It’s one of the few vegetables (part of the grass family, actually) that can easily transition from raw to cooked, savory to sweet – even popped! It’s sheer abundance and affordability at the market has us reaching for this staple all season long to create appetizers, salads, mains and even desserts infused with the taste of summer. Bonus points if you pair it with other warm weather favorites, like tomatoes, or green beans. Sure, we’d never turn down a freshly steamed cob slathered with corn, but if you’re looking for some new ways to enjoy this American classic, we’ve got some fresh picks for you below.
