Do you bother husk it, desilk it, or rinse it?
its the best. whenever i don't feel like cooking, i just go find something to eat fresh.Grazing is one of the delights of organic gardening.

DDF summed it up there. I don't have room for corn. But as he said, pick it while the water is boiling, corn sugar changes to starch so fast is isn't even funny.DoubleDogFarm wrote:The best corn is harvested out of your own garden with the water already boiling. If you drop one along the way, don't stop to pick it up.

Who cooks sweet corn? Raw, fresh out of the husk is the best way to eat it while standing in the field.DoubleDogFarm wrote:The best corn is harvested out of your own garden with the water already boiling. If you drop one along the way, don't stop to pick it up.
$6 doz? Holy smokes... I'm coming to sell in your neighborhood.gardenvt wrote:I don't have room for corn in our garden but I do buy at a local farm stand and roast it on the grill. We have it for dinner and the rest gets stripped and goes to the freezer for corn chowder and soups in the winter.
The grocery stores are cheaper $5/dz but I like getting it fresh and you can tell just by the silk if it is fresh. NEVER buy corn when the silk has been trimmed OR when it is all dried up. It is not frsh.
I pay $6/dz at the farm stand and have no regrests about it. Corn is here for this short season and we going enjoy and store the best quality possible.
