The other day I bought some corn intending to eat it plain and simple, straight off the cob. Then a distant memory of seeing someone make corn stock got stuck in my head and I decided I needed to make some corn soup. I have no idea where I heard of the idea of making corn stock but from what I remembered you just boiled the cobs in some water and you had a nice flavorful stock. It seemed easy enough and even if it didn’t work I would have tons of corn kernels ready to eat however I wanted. I really liked the idea of actually using the cobs, which I have only ever thrown out.
