Our favorite local farm markets have sweet Jersey corn-on the-cob ready to go for your July 4th celebration.

That perfectly buttered and salted ear of corn may be an all-American tradition, but why not try one of these four new ideas for a new twist on an old favorite!

Corn on the Cob Toppings

1.  Mix pesto sauce with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and melted butter for some Italian influence.

2.  For corn with a kick, mix mayonnaise with Mexican cojita cheese and ground chili pepper.

3.  Make it even sweeter with a mixture of cinnamon, granulated sugar, and melted butter.

4.  Add coarse sea salt, cracked black pepper and  cumin seeds to olive oil for a simple spread.
