Summer is here and summer means picnics. What’s a picnic without some delicious corn to enjoy? Check out these delicious corn recipes that will be perfect for your next picnic. Which one will you try first?
Yesterday we went for a picnic and ate burgers, watermelon salad, and grilled corn on the cob. I’m telling you, that corn on the cob was some of the best corn I’ve had in ages. It was so sweet, perfectly cooked, and I couldn’t get enough of it!! It was delicious!
All we did was shuck the corn cobs, wrap each cob in tin foil with a little butter, salt, and pepper, and grill for a while until the corn started to brown a little. Delicious!
Of course, buying the right corn is a must. I love sweet varieties and now is the perfect time to find them at the market!
