Corn Stock!!
  Re: (...)
They did have corn at the store tonight. It said "Fresh", but when it's shipped in from another country, you know it's a bit long in the tooth. I bought 8 of them, only ate one, so, what to do with the rest?? I cut the kernels off the cobs to save. Then I thought, Corn Stock! It's Jean's recipe (or Kelly's), either way, it's on the stove simmering. The house smells wonderful. So, if corn is on your future menu, save the cobs and make stock.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Okay, this sounds very good, but what do you do with it, make corn chowder? I've never made a vegetable stock before.

I remember the corn stock! I'm hoping to make my own stock to stock this year....if only the corn makes! If I remember, you guys did all kinds of things with this stuff! I can't wait to make some clam chowder with it!
Keep your mind wide open.

I haven't had any corn stock in the freezer for months! It's great in soups, use in quinoa, couscous, rice, tried in polenta, but was redundant... even custards. Anything you'd use stock/broth in that goes with corn flavors - wonderful! Even a cup heated and just drink it ain't bad.

Thanks for posting it , Jean. I didn't have many cobs, but, I'll have enough stock to make salmon corn chowder. I've used it in soups alot. The one I liked best was a soup / stew that has chicken, chickpeas,coconut milk ,cumin, coriander, turmeric etc.
