Storage


When buying corn, squeeze the ear to feel whether the kernels are closely spaced, firm, and round. The husk should be bright green and tightly wrapped around the corn cob. The silk should be glossy and pale yellow.  Fresh corn is best if eaten immediately.  To store corn, place the unhusked cobs in a bag and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 

Preparation


Try corn on the cob by boiling it in unsalted water for 3-4 minutes.  Fresh corn is great eaten raw on a salad, in pasta dishes or on top of soups.  Add fresh corn to whole wheat pancakes, muffins or cornbread of a sweet crunch.
