Healthy Side Dish | Maple Flavored Corn

Healthy Side Dish Maple Flavored Corn | Becky Cooks Lightly

With the holidays looming, I thought it prudent to be on the lookout for healthy side dishes. Corn is a popular holiday dish here in the south, but unfortunately it usually goes from can, to microwave, to mouth. Not healthy. Not delicious. So this holiday, try mixing it up a little and serve corn in a whole new way. Your guests will thank you.
