Sweetcorn is one of those end of summer vegetables, which is around all year. Did you know that sweetcorn is actually the immature corn, which is picked at the 'milk stage? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_corn.
Most people think of eating sweet corn, on the cob, boiled or grilled, and then covered with lashings of butter. Yum! But you might be on a diet or not be a butter lover like me, so another great way of eating corn is cooked on the barbecue and served with lime juice and chilli. And salt.
If you like corn bread, you can always put in the fresh kernels of corn - to give it a bit of texture.
