Serving ideas:

Serve corn freshly grilled (see Cooking Tips), in a traditional salsa or salsa with a twist, or just boiled with traditional salt and butter. It always makes a great summer side!

Pair corn with smokey flavours like bacon to create an irresistible side dish that’s great for dinner on the patio, or even an easy camp side dish you throw in the skillet.

Add an Indian twist with this garam masala grilled corn from Canadian Living, or stick to more traditional type flavours with these smokey sweet corn tostadas.

Celebrate summer by turning fresh, seasonal corn into a delicious relish to top hot dogs, because what says summer more than corn?
