Corn On The Cob Recipes, Tips & Videos

Nothing says summer like corn on the cob. A native of the Americas, maize is a cereal grain that was domesticated in Meso-America that rapidly spread to the rest of North and South America. By the time of the European colonization in the late 15th and early 16th century, maize spread to the rest of the world.

The corn we eat today is a hybrid of maize that is called "sweet corn". Sweet corn is the most widely grown crop in United States and today is also used to create Ethanol. Corn is used to feed both people and livestock and is a good source of fiber. Late summer is the ideal time for corn on the cob when you can buy it fresh. But if you have a real taste for it, you can also buy it frozen on the cob.

This recipe may sound odd, but it's worth trying! I had to convince a few friends to try it, they were amazed at how good it is. You'll need a napkin, but well worth it. You can also revise it and use with canned or frozen corn! Simply add desired amount of ingredients to a bowl of corn and mix.


Ears of corn


Regular or low fat mayonnaise

Grated Parmesan cheese

Chili powder


Salt and pepper to taste


Husk corn. Bring large pot of water to boil. Add ears of corn to water. Cook until desired tenderness, 8 minutes or less. Spread desired amount of mayonnaise on corn with a butter knife (more is better). Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with chili powder. Sprinkle with parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste (if desired).
