Corn on the cob is one of summer’s simple pleasures. There's nothing better than stopping for a few ears at a roadside market on the way home from the beach and shucking them (a task best done outside, with shoes off and music blasting) when you get home.

But sometimes, the classic route -- butter, salt, eaten right off the cob -- is the only way to go.
