We are in the midst of fresh corn season right now. My question for you is, what do you do with the corn cobs? Is there any use for them or should they go into the trash. In today's episode I am going to share how I use the corn cobs to flavor and add body to a batch of corn chowder.

🛒 Before You Checkout
What you need to know before you checkout at the grocery store or market:
Whenever you buy fresh corn, you should try and cook it as soon as you can. Not that it is going to go bad because it will last for a while. However the sugars in the corn convert to starch as the corn ages, so it will taste sweeter the sooner you eat it.
If you ever go to a grocery store and they put a trash can next to the corn for you to shuck the corn right then and there, just don't do it. Leaving the corn in the husk is going to protect your corn and keep it from drying out. I know it may be tempting but just don't do it. If you are don't like doing it in your kitchen, step outside for a minute. We often send our kids outside to shuck corn for us.
