Crisp, Sweet Corn – in Season Now

Available from May through October, corn on the cob is a summertime staple for many folks across the country. And no wonder. When steamed, grilled or boiled, the starches in corn turn to sugar, turning them into crisp, sweet treats — perfect for picnics, barbecues and simple dinners at home.

Corn is a healthy addition to your diet. It comes packed with lutein and zeaxanthin, which are phytochemicals that are potent antioxidants believed to help improve vision. This fiber-rich food also aids in digestion. And corn contains a medley of nutrients including folate, thiamin, phosphorus, vitamin C and magnesium.

Looking for another way to serve up corn other than on the cob? Here are some delicious recipes to try:
