These Cactus-Shaped Corn Cob Holders Are Cute and Practical
Summer is full of fresh and delicious produce. While strawberries and peaches are perfect for desserts like Summer Berry Pie and Peach Galette, I personally think corn is the tastiest seasonal offering. I love the slight sweetness that corn brings to dishes—plus, it's full of B vitamins, iron, protein and potassium.
While there are many different ways to prepare corn, my favorite method is to grill the vegetable and eat it right off the cob. And with these cactus-shaped corn cob holders from Williams Sonoma, I don't have to worry about burning my fingers on the hot surface (buy them: Williams Sonoma, $10). These adorable corn holders come in a set of four, so the whole family can use them during dinner.
In addition to these plant-shaped holders, Williams Sonoma also has a few animal-themed versions. The sheep or cow corn cob picks would look funny on any plate (buy them: Williams Sonoma, sheep for $10, cow on sale for $6). And if you need help preparing the vegetable, this stainless-steel corn basket makes it easy to grill and flip multiple corn cobs at a time (buy it: Williams Sonoma, $20).
It's the perfect time to enjoy a corn on the cob, and these cactus-shaped corn cob holders will make any meal easier (and less messy!) to enjoy. And if you want to take your corn a step further, try one of these fun flavor combinations with our Mexican Street Corn or our Grilled Corn on the Cob with Pesto Butter.
