Convert Leftover Corn Cobs Into a Delicious All-Purpose Corn Broth
Just like you can use leftover corn cobs to make corn crème , you can also use them to make a flavorful, savory broth that can be used in tons of soups, stews, or anything that requires broth. You will get every last bite of the cobs before you discard them.
You can use either the cobs left over from the popcorn on your summer barbecue or the cobs you cut off the kernels for salad or other dishes. Simply simmer the ears in water with a couple of pinches of salt for about an hour. Your broth will have a delicate corn flavor and a yellow color. You can use it in any dish where you would normally use broth or water, from soup or chowder to risotto or polenta. You can even use it as a cooking liquid for chicken to add flavor to the meat.
