All I can say is: corn, I love you. I love your flavor, your texture, your price. I wish you would stick around longer than a few summer months, but I suppose absence makes the stomach grow fonder. And, corn, you are more than a mere side dish. Don't let anyone treat you that way. You are a better than that. You are a headliner:
Corn and peach salad, a lazy summer dish. For grilling the corn and it's perfect for a heat wave.
Corn fritters with maple syrup, a dish that requires air conditioning and a bullet proof vest, but worth the battle.
Corn and bacon chowder, or should I say chowDUH?
Corn quesadillas, a cheap satisfying meal.
