Tips for the BEST TASTING Sweet Corn

Sweet corn is best when eaten the same day that it is picked. Our sweet corn in picked fresh daily and never kept until the next day.  We recommend that, if possible, you buy smaller quantities for use the same day.

STORAGE

If you need to store the corn, leave the husks on and store in a cool place such as the refrigerator, basement, or garage.  Heat causes the natural sugars in the corn to turn to starch, and starch alters the texture and taste of the corn.

STOVE-TOP COOKING

  1. Husk and remove the silk.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil.
  3. Place the corn in the boiling water for exactly three minutes.
  4. Remove the corn from the water and serve hot.

FREEZING

  1. Follow the cooking instructions above, and then immediately place the corn in an ice bath (a sink full of cold water and ice cubes).
  2. Cut the corn off of the cob and place in freezer bags or containers.
  3. Freeze for up to 6-12 months.
