Here are some tips and information about corn:

  • Recent developments have made the corn we buy today keep its sweetness for a few days rather than just a few hours.
  • The secret is pre-cooling, a process that is done moments after the corn is picked that removes the field heat quicker than refrigeration.
  • This slows the sugar-conversion process and prolongs the cob's life. Thus, the corn stays fresher and sweeter longer.
  • Look for healthy green husks, plump kernels and silks that are moist and light golden, not brown and brittle.
  • Remove husk and boil no more than two minutes in high boil in unsalted water.
  • To store, wrap unhusked corn in damp paper towels; place in a plastic bag for an absolute maximum of two days. Just one day is ideal.
