Anyone else "over the edge" with corn on the cob this season?

Only three of us in this household. But we're chomping corn on the cob like it's our last meal. Have bought, and BH has prepared, about 30 ears just in the past 10 days. It's that good! Just got six ears today from my new favorite farm stand in SE MI., this afternoon. When paying for the purchase, mentioned to the owner, "this corn is like eating candy for dinner." His reply: "Yep. It's really good this year."

What are other 'hounds experience with COTC this year?

  1. Deb and I have been eating corn on the cob at every opportunity this summer. I'm ok with fall but hate winter so we cherish this time of year before we have to hunker down. Let the record show we have also concentrated on lobsters this season.

    1. I think a lot of people are noticing how sweet the corn is lately, although not everyone necessarily loves this...

      1. I just moved from the East to Denver, and I bought a grill. They have "Olathe" corn here, which is almost as good as Jersey corn (lol), and I've been grilling it. I have it with butter, lime juice and chili powder. YUM.

        1. We are only buying the varieties that are not sweet since that is what we prefer. Just lucky that we have that option. But we are eating corn on most days. Such a short seaon. And every meal has at least one sliced tomato.

          Soon, I will buy abunch of Queen Ann, remove and freeze the kernals, and then make the corn stock. Thanksgiving all this is served baked. Truly delicious.

          1. Lucky you, every time we've bought corn here in southwestern PA this year it's been merely "fine" with no big desire to have a second ear.
