Row after row, kernel after kernel, ear after ear. Keep the sweet corn coming please! And, make sure there's enough butter, salt, and pepper for me.

I don't see any one way that isn't in my wheelhouse.

Check out below some of the ways my coworkers shared their preferences:

I like to grill it with chili powder and lime juice. Little char makes it awesome! ~Josh

I wait for my wife to do all the work. She simply boils it, then salt and butter. ~Levy

Usually, we cut it into thirds, boil and top it with butter and salt. As a kid at big family events, we'd smoke it in the husk on the grill! ~Jeff R.

Boil it. REAL butter and lemon pepper. ~Scott

I like when it's grilled, then putting sour cream, lime juice, Tajin, Cotija cheese, salt, and pepper! ~Hannah

Boil it or cook it on the grill. Butter, salt, and pepper 😊 ~Sonja

I boil my sweet corn until it floats then cover in butter, salt, and pepper. The last time I tried it was in the slow cooker. (Not as good). I shucked the corn and wrapped it in tin foil with butter, salt, and pepper. Then slow cook for 3 hours on high. This was a recipe I found online. The corn itself felt soggy. Not the crunch I get when boiling. ~Jeremy

After boiling in the water, I put on a mixture of fine black pepper and a little Lawry's season salt and sprinkled it on all sides. Then I gleefully make a mess eating it typewriter style...back and forth, back and forth. Rinse hands and face a repeat! ~ Jeff S.

Microwave it IN THE HUSK (2.5-3.0) minutes each ear ...then butter and salt. ~Earl

Nothing wrong with corn-OFF-the-cob either. Mix into fresh salsa. Make a pot of corn chowder or corn risotto. Is anyone up for skillet cornbread? Or, dig out grandma's scalloped corn recipe.

Here Are The 7 Remaining Drive-In Theaters In South Dakota

If you were born last century...you know, in the nineteen hundreds (ugh)...you may have spent a summer evening in the car watching movies. I don't mean on your phone, I mean at the drive-in movie theater!

If you were in Sioux Falls in the 1970s and '80's you may remember seeing Jaws and Indiana Jones at The East Park or the Starlite Drive-In. Both drive-ins opened just after World War 2. The East Park didn't make it out of the '70s, closing in 1978. The Starlite survived long enough to see the birth of home video, closing in 1985.


Drive-in movies had a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. They were a way to go out and do something social without getting out of your car.

If you tried one during that time, or you remember the fun of a warm summer evening watching movies on that giant screen there are still places in South Dakota and around Sioux Falls you can do it.
