We love using our air fryer or grilling out corn on the cob. The flavor that the grill gives the corn is so tasty. The Blackstone really brings out the sweet flavors of corn. It is easily prepared with simple ingredients.

Once the corn is grilled, we love to cut the kernels off to use in many different recipes. The kernels are great in salads, salsa or many sweet corn recipes. This is one vegetable that my kids will eat without complaining because of the sweet flavor. You may also love this Blackstone Mexican Street Corn.

How to Pick the Best Corn

The best corn to get is from a farmer, a farm stand or at a farmers market. Once a corn is picked, it looses its sweetness the moment it has been picked. Serve as quickly as possible after it has been harvested.

A good corn on the cob should be heavy and have very little give. When picking corn at the grocery store, make sure the ears are bright green and not wilted. We recommend squeezing the corn around the tips to ensure it is full and juicy.
