Here in Maryland we are getting the very first Eastern Shore silver queen corn. It is unbelievably sweet. My husband and I have a long running argument over which is sweeter: Eastern shore or Long Island sweet corn? Well, since we are in Maryland - Eastern shore corn rules our house. I've tried about every different way to make corn the best: roasting, boiling, grilling, raw, etc.
To me - a simple saute of the freshest kernels is the most sweet, simple, beautiful side you can have in the summer. Melt some good salted butter, saute just to heat the corn through - top with basil. Summer in on a plate. —meganvt01
