Carolyn asks: What’s your favorite way to eat corn?


Boiled on the cob for 9 minutes...or less. Then eat! You can add butter and salt and pepper if you like but it is great without it if it is really fresh and young.

Thanks for this article. I was at the grocery store last week, and saw a friend of mine. I commented to her that the fresh corn looked good today, and she said, but it causes belly fat. Since I am a certified nutritionist, this comment alarmed me. I am printing this article to give to her. Corn flakes may cause belly fat, but not fresh corn!

Corn fried in mixture of olive oil and a little bit of butter, sprinkled with sea salt and pepper. For a change I also add chopped fresh tomatoes.

My favorite way to eat corn is to baked/cooked over the grill on the cob.

Potato salad: Scalloped potatoes with corn, bacon, and any other additive you would like!

The color of the corn has nothing to do with being genetically modified or not as previously mentioned. Nor does the color determine its sweetness.

Corn is a grain, or seed. Vegetables are typically considered as edible parts of plants other than seeds or fruits; however, the word 'vegetable' is not a scientific definition, so the application of the word is arbitrary.
