The Summer Fest corn celebration and all the great recipes from food and garden bloggers got my mouth watering for more of this warm-weather veggie. I'm still seeing piles and piles of it at my local market -- here's how to use it.

This week’s trip to the market ended with two kinds of corn – the bicolor (white and yellow) variety and a golden yellow kind known as “Tuxedo” that has a deeper (but equally delicious) flavor.

To prepare -- grill, roast, boil, or steam. When boiling, add a splash of milk in with the water to enhance the corn’s natural sugars. Once cooked, it’s ready for munching off the cob or chopped off for salads, salsas, pasta and soups – anywhere you want to add a nibble of summer flavor.
