Perhaps no other food is as versatile as corn is. Corn can go from quick-and-easy side dish to show-stopping main with ease. Biting into an ear of warm, buttery fresh corn is a luxurious culinary delight. Scooping up a spoonful of delicately sweet corn ice cream is a unique flavor experience. Forking through ooey gooey corn casserole is a picnic must. Our recipes explore every way you can use corn from soups to grilled sides, corn cakes to cheesy soufflés. Enjoy our best recipes for all that sweet, crunchy, peak-season corn.

Beyond the whole cob lie these of-the-moment recipes: tangy relishes, savory pancakes, creamy fresh-corn grits, and a frozen corn-milk treat.
First up is Corn Chowchow. You'll be amazed at how many ways you can serve this recipe. Feel free to make a milder relish by seeding the jalapeño.
