Shucks, did you know it was Corn on the Cob day?

Today, June 11th, is National Corn on the Cob Day. Personally, I love corn on the cob. My big brother, Nathan, puts it on the grill, sprinkles some fairy dust and poof, it’s delicious.

A little history on corn. Corn was developed/cultured about 7000 years ago in Central America. It started as maize, which is very unlike it’s future ancestor. Before Columbus stepped foot in America, no other continents or their peoples knew about corn.

As you probably know, corn can be used for much more than just eating. I know the first thing that comes to my mind is corn oil for cars. Corn product is used in glue, books, shoe polish, aspirin, ink, makeup, ice cream and more.

How to Choose a Cob

This is very important! I learned this from these old ladies at a local farmers store, Blocks. Side note: if you live near the southern Detroit area, be sure to visit!

Anyways, picking the right cob is relatively easy. First, pull the silk back so about an inch of the corn shows. If it looks all white and dried out, throw it back. If it looks like a real piece of corn, take it! Yes, it is incredibly simple. But I aways notice that most people don’t check! I don’t care if the corn is $1 or $0.10, less corn = bigger waste of money.

To celebrate todays delicious holiday, I collected my favorite corn recipes from around the internets.
