Up to our ears…

It is July and in Iowa we are almost up to our ears……………in sweet corn.

Tips for eating sweet cornRemember 3 things about Sweet Corn:

  1. Buy and eat sweet corn as soon after picking as possible. When picked corn’s sugars start to convert to starch quickly.
  2. When choosing corn, the husk should be bright green and fit snugly around the cob. The kernels should be plump and pocketed in tight rows.
  3. The pesky silks? Use a soft bristle toothbrush to remove the silks. Keep this brush in the kitchen drawer.
