Usage Tips

  1. Corn cobs can be grilled with butter and different cheese. They can be barbecued as well.


Corn cobs are the by-product of maize crop, which is the central core of an ear of corn. They are the long rounded parts of the corn plant on which small yellow seeds grow. The inner part of the corn cob is white and has foam plastic like consistency. When the ears are young, they are called baby corn. Baby corn can be consumed raw while mature corn cob is not completely edible as their cobs become tougher and only its kernels are edible.

Selection Guide

Look for the corns that are bright green and tightly wrapped against the cob, as it is an indicator of freshness.
