Summer Soiree: 4 Cobs, 4 Ways

From ear to ear, no two cobs of corn are the same. Consider those kernels a canvas for your culinary creativity, whether that involves slathering on spices, drizzling on oil or rolling them in a pinch of pepper. Stumpted? Here are four ways to add global gusto to your hometown husk.

1. Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime Butter: Tyler applies a three-layered coating of lime butter, queso and ancho chile powder for a smooth and spicy cob that ignites the taste buds (pictured above).

2. Iowan Grilled Sweet Corn on the Cob: As a nod to the Hawkeye State, this corn needs only a pat of garlic butter to tease out its sweetness.

3. Mexican Street Corn: Inspired by the popular Mexican snack, these cobs sport an easy-to-prep chile mayonnaise and a lime garnish.

4. Corn on the Cob with Parmesan Cheese: Giada’s boiled corn brings essential Italian flavors to the table with a melted garlic-Parmesan coating and sprinkle of parsley.
