Today: How to make the most of a short-lived summer staple: corn.
Corn is quintessential summer. It's easy to measure the passing of the short-but-sweet season during long drives down roads flanked by cornfields: The taller the stalks get, the fewer lazy days we have left.
Here's the thing: When your seasonality window is small and time is running out, a sharpened toolkit of knowledge is essential. If you're not careful, corn will slip through your fingers -- and not just because it's covered in butter. Consider these tips and recipes your arsenal.
