While putting up some sweet corn from the garden I was toying with using the cobs for something. @rotuts and @ElsieD both suggested a broth--rotuts reminded me of Vivian's Corn Stock located on pg. 232 of the cookbook.
Using some of the inner husks would have never occurred to me. I didn't use any salt or anything to season it--I'll do that when I thaw it out and use it. It's very corny and good though
That's a great idea! I've never made corn stock, but I use the denuded cobs to flavor the liquid in my corn chowder. It is amazing how much flavor that adds. I would freeze all our leftover cobs all summer, but they are gnawed on and I don't think anyone would appreciate gnawed cob stock.
