I'm pretty sure my family could sustain exclusively on watermelon and corn on the cob during the summer months. Of course, we eat a lot of other things too, but suffice to say, we go through a lot of melons and ears! Even my four year old, the pickiest eater on the planet, can chow down on corn with the best of 'em, and he's perfected his very machine -like chomping technique. (It's impressive.)

8 Delicious Corn on the Cob Recipes

Corn on the cob is so simple. You can boil it. You can grill it. You can roast it. You can eat it plain or slather on butter and sprinkle on some salt and pepper.
