It is best on the cobb, but I also like it off the cobb, creamed, in salads, etc. I have also heard that it is good grilled, but I have never tried it prepared in that manner.

I voted for kernels, as that's the brunt of what I use, however, fire-roasted corn on the cob is excellent, and we all love creamed corn.

I also like candy corn, go figure.

Thats a great way to do it - slathered in butter. I can't remeber where I read this, and I have never tried it, but try wrapping a slice of bacon around your cob when you grill it.

I like it steamed or boiled on the cob but.. I cut it off before eating. I don't like the way it gets stuck in my teeth if I eat it from the cob.

I picked on the cob for the poll. But,I love corn in any form, one of my favorites with frozen corn is to fry it...I just melt butter in a skillet, add the corn, a light sprinkle of salt, pepper, and sugar, and let it go til I start getting some browning, not a lot nor burned..It is so good like this....We have it fairly often. The little guys love corn. Carson got his first corn on the cob and with his 6 shiney white teeth he chewed and sucked til we had to take it from him, then of course he howled like a banshee, so we gave him another... He ended up butter and pieces of corn from ear to ear

A great lunch when corn is in season and at its best is taking the kernels off the cob and dry-frying them with some ground cumin, coriander and paprika then mixing them with a couple of lightly beaten eggs and making a frittata with some coriander and lime juice.

Delicious spring and summer lunch.

Fresh on the cob... yum yum!

Have you ever had grilled corn on the cob? That is one of my favourite summertime treats. It makes it taste a bit smokey and really brings out the sweetness of the corn.

We like corn most any way but I've never understood why people have corn and potatoes in the same meal. Since corn has starch we always consider it a starch and serve a green veggie with it, but I see all the time that some just use it as another veggie. A friend of my son's said they had corn at every dinner meal, in one form or another, no matter what else they had, corn was included. I like it a lot, but not that much. It was good in my soup last night.
