It is July and in Iowa we are almost up to our ears……………in sweet corn.
- Buy and eat sweet corn as soon after picking as possible. When picked corn’s sugars start to convert to starch quickly.
- 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.
- The pesky silks? Use a soft bristle toothbrush to remove the silks. Keep this brush in the kitchen drawer.
