Grilled Corn, Four Ways

Grilled corn is a summer staple in our kitchen. You'll love these four variations - garlic browned butter, curry yogurt, sriracha lime and miso

Summer corn is a bit of a religion in our house. Like tomatoes, it's one of those vegetables that should really only be consumed in season. If you've tasted fresh summer corn, just picked and straight off the cob, then you understand. After corn is picked, the natural sugars start to convert to starch and the corn loses it's sweetness. My husband's long commute to work takes him past acres of cornfields and each summer, he gives me daily updates on it's progress. As soon as it's ready, we eat grilled corn at least once a week. Something about those lightly charred, sweet kernels gets me!

Have you tried Mexican street corn? It's my absolute favorite way to eat it! But slathered with cheese, mayonnaise and crema, it's not exactly the most nutritious. When I got a shipment of Amaize sweet corn, I decided to play around and come up with some healthier grilled corn toppings. Between the flavor packed garnishes and naturally sweet Amaize corn, we were in heaven! My South Carolina friends can find Amaize corn at Food Lion through August.
