A creative use for corn cobs.

I can only think of three uses for corn cobs.

  1. Compost.
  2. Shooing stray cats out of the yard. 
  3. Making vegetable stock.

The cob to sweet corn has a lot of flavor.  Use corn cobs, a carrot,  a stalk of celery, a small onion and some thyme and bay leaf.  Cover with water and simmer for three to four hours.  Add more water from time to time.  Strain and freeze.  This makes a great vegetable stock for winter soups.  If you have frozen corn you can prepare a great cream soup.
