When it's good and sweet, it's about the best that food can be.

It's in season, but I haven't had any yet even though I've been craving it lately. Mmm, salty buttery corn on the cob...

I buy my corn from a local grower who picks it in the morning before the market so it's about as fresh as it gets unless you grow your own. At 50 cents a piece it is a great deal. I only buy it from him so after corn season is over I don't bother until the following summer. It's as sweet as candy. Sometimes I remove it from the cob and make a salad with peppers, cherry tomatoes, scallions and a balsamic vinaigrette but most of the time I shuck it and eat it raw. Cooking doesn't improve it unless you want it warm. If one wants to go the extra mile coat the corn with Cotija cheese, sprinkle with chili pepper and a squeeze of lime. Heaven.

With salty butter - lovely. But never with a beard - makes me smell rancid even after a wash. Full shower required and bugger doing that more than once a month.

It's something that I enjoyed as a child but as an adult, it's too messy.

Slathered with butter then wrapped in foil then shoved into the barbecue coals --- nuthin' better.

Prefer fresh white corn to the yellow. When fresh and peak of season there is no need to put anything on it. Steam for a minute or two and eat no butter no salt.

Another favorite is grilled corn on the BBQ.
