corn

How do you like your corn seasoned? We asked you to tell us your favorite ways to season corn on the cob and you gave us some unique ideas for how to shake up our corn-flavoring routine.

Versatile and flavorful, corn adds the perfect crunch of sweetness to many dishes — see all the suggestions from this week’s Cornapalooza. . But sometimes we just want to enjoy the simplicity of eating corn straight from the cob, without frills. And a little help from the right herbs and spices can take corn on the cob to the next level.

Instead of resorting to the go-to butter, salt and pepper option, how about adding garlic, parmesan and chives to the butter for more complex flavor? Or, if you’re a purist, plain ole’ corn on the cob with nothing on it can taste pretty wholesome and tasty too, as one reader explained.

From Healthy Eats:

“I love smoked paprika on my corn…with salt & butter.” – Marla, via Healthy Eats

From Twitter:

“Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning and a little I can’t believe it’s not butter.”–  @JamieAnnsays, via Twitter

“Shake on a little pizza seasoning and a little Parmesan.” — @damoncrawley, via Twitter

“Top my corn after its been grilled with not a thing, Juicy and still taste great!!!” — @chocolatedoss, via Twitter

    I dislike the music some of the cooking shows are playing when the host/hostess is talking, its difficult to follow the conversation with the music in the background…My dog runs for the door thinking Michael Smith's music is the doorbell, and one of my favourites Anna Olsen sounds like someone is taking music lessons in the background…I watch these shows for the cooking content, if I want to listen to music I will put on the stereo.
