Corn On the Cob Seasoning
Smoky hickory leads the way to a delicious summer side dish with our Corn on the Cob Seasoning blend. Wanting to play off the inherent sweetness of summer corn, we combined our hickory salt with the sour burst of orange zest, and played that off of paprika’s mellow, dependable anchor. Black pepper contributes rich pine flavor and lemony top notes, and we keep the grind of some ingredients large, so our Corn on the Cob Seasoning blend delivers great texture and crunch. We blend this in our facility in small batches to maintain the excellent quality and freshness that we strive for in every shipment.
Despite corn’s omnipresence on tables across the country at the height of the summer holiday season, more than 90% of the corn grown on American farmlands is not designated for human consumption. Most of the crop yield is slated for use in the production of ethanol, or for feeding farm animals—livestock eat about three times as much corn as people do, annually. And sweet corn—the corn for which this seasoning blend was designed, bursting with summertime nostalgia and best when covered in butter—only accounts for about 1% of the overall corn crop in the United States.
Tips From Our Kitchen
Steam, roast, or boil corn on the cob. Drizzle with oil or slather with butter, and sprinkle Corn on the Cob Seasoning on top. Toss across corn bread or mac and cheese and bake. This is a great topper for roasted vegetables like zucchini or yellow squash. Use this as a finishing seasoning on unconventional salads like shaved fennel with orange supremes, or toss over thick slices of tomato and drizzle with a balsamic vinegar reduction.
Blended from smoked hickory salt, sea salt, orange zest, black pepper and paprika.
