Best Plates, Dishes, & Holders for Corn on the Cob
Eating fresh corn on the cob is a real treat! It's one of my fond memories from growing up in NY state. Every summer we'd buy corn on the cob at a roadside stand, and eat it as a dinner appetizer with plenty of butter and salt. My Mom has special dishes that were shaped perfectly to hold one ear. We had holders to help us devour the corn :)
Our corn plates and holders were pretty traditional, but in my search today I've found lots of cute holders, including animal holders, and glass and pottery dishes of all kinds. Here are some unique dishware for serving corn on the cob!
