Sweet Corn Cob Pops

It is sweet corn season here in Indiana. We recently put up over 100 ears of corn for next winter. Sweet corn is a mighty good thing, whether in a chowder, in salsa, or my favorite, right off the grill. I just love the charred sweetness of corn off a charcoal fire. And you’ll find that these little corn cob pops make eating corn even more fun.

We get our sweet corn from My Dad’s Sweet Corn, in Tipton, Indiana. Their corn is available at many of the farmer’s markets in and around Indianapolis.

The dipping sauce with the corn tastes so fresh with a great cilantro flavor, backed with a little heat from a jalapeno.

Also try my corn cob Maque Choux.
