How to Cook Corn and Fresh Corn Recipes

We've collected all of our pages on corn and created this collection which will teach you everything from choosing the right kind of corn and how to shuck corn, to how to cook corn and how to store corn.  No matter the season, our easy-to-follow corn information guide will teach you everything you need to know about corn in order to enjoy it year-round!  We've even included some of our fresh corn recipes for you to use with your new found knowledge.  So dive right in and easily learn how to shuck, cook, store and, best of all, enjoy corn all year long!

Types of Corn

There are hundreds of different types of corn grown in the United States and around the world each year.  These types of corn all fall into one of four primary categories: flint, dent, sweet and popcorn.  While dent corn is the type of corn used most commonly, primarily as livestock feed, sweet corn is what we love to eat in our favorite sweet corn recipes like Fresh Corn Cakes and Corn 'n' Black Bean Salsa.

How to Shuck Corn

Once you've learned all about the different types of corn and their use, visit our page about how to shuck corn and watch Howard as he shows us how easy it is to break the golden nuggets from their husk.  Shucking corn is super simple with these three steps, and using your freshly shucked corn in recipes like Farm-Fresh Corn Salad and Corn Relish have never been easier or more satisfying!

How to Freeze Corn and How to Store Corn

Having fresh corn year-round is key to making these sweet corn recipes like Stacked Taco Salad and Seasoned Corn Spreads.  On this page, you'll learn how to freeze corn on the cob, how to freeze corn kernels, and how to store corn on the husk.  Freezing corn on the cob is a great way to have fresh corn on hand for quick and easy corn recipes, no matter the season!

How to Cut Corn Off the Cob

There are two ways to cut corn off the cob: the messy way and the easy way!  Howard shows us how to cut corn off the cob using two every day pieces of glasswear and a chef's knife without the hassle of cleanup that you would have otherwise.  Cutting fresh corn off the cob is a great substitute for canned corn in sweet corn recipes like Fresh Corn Dip and Corn, Okra, and Tomatoes.

Fresh Corn Recipes

Once you've mastered all there is to know about the different types of corn, how to choose corn, how to shuck corn, how to cook corn, cutting corn off the cob, and how to freeze and store your fresh corn husks, put your skills to the test.  Try making Easy Corn Soup, or impress your friends and family with these simple Shrimp and Corn Packets.  Not sure about these?  Visit our Fresh Corn Recipes page for more ideas!
