Start with fresh corn on the cob. Look for bright green husks and plump kernels.
Boiling corn is classic. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the corn for 5-7 minutes for crisp-tender perfection.
Steaming retains the corn's natural sweetness. Steam for 7-10 minutes until tender.
Grilled corn is a flavor explosion. Grill with the husks on for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally.
Microwave corn for a quick fix. Place in a microwave-safe dish, cover with a damp paper towel, and heat for 2-4 minutes.
Enhance flavor with seasoned butter, herbs, or a sprinkle of chili powder.
Add a dusting of Parmesan cheese for a savory twist.
Try "elote" with mayo, cotija cheese, and chili powder for a Mexican-inspired treat.
Mix honey and butter for a sweet and creamy topping.
Wrap corn with bacon strips and grill for a smoky, indulgent treat.
