Peak Season Picks - Corn

HOME
Corn is an amazing grain. Its power is being harnessed to do everything from feeding your family to fueling your ride.

 SELECTING YOUR CORN:

  • Look for corn whose husks are fresh, green and not dried out. The silk should also be soft and somewhat moist, without signs of decay.
  • Gently pull back on part of the husk. The kernels should be plump and tightly arranged in rows.

 STORING YOUR CORN:

  • It is best to use fresh corn the same day you buy it.
  • However, you can store freshly purchased corn in the refrigerator. Keep corn in the husks and place in the crisper drawer, if possible. Corn will keep for up to two days.

 SERVING YOUR CORN:

  • Shuck the corn (remove the husk and silk) right before you cook it.
  • If you plan to roast or grill your corn in the husk, the silk must still be removed. Pull husk down, but not off the stem; then remove the silk. rewrap the husks and tie at the top.
