Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week, we are celebrating a family favourite with 33 corn recipe ideas!

Domesticated by Indigenous Mexicans about 10,000 years ago, corn is considered a staple food in the Americas.

Corn is not only the main component of many processed food products, such as boxed cereals, chips and oil, it is also eaten all across the continent in the form of tortillas, cornbread, empanadas, fritters, stews, arepas, and many other dishes.

However, it is when summer is in full swing that corn makes its way into people's kitchens in its most natural form: on the cob.

Whether it's eaten as is just bathed with some herbs and spices, or whether it's stripped from the pole to be used as the main component of a dish, the golden grain is definitely a must-have at any grilling party.

Wondering how to present it in a more creative way at your next summer get-together? Look no further! FBC members came up with 33 Corn Recipes that will make you shine.
