It is important to eat sweet corn on the same day that it is picked. Otherwise the natural sugars in the kernels convert to starch. There are several ways of preparing corn, here are two:
(1) Boiled Corn: Boil salted water and place the husked corn in for four minutes. Remove and butter lightly, sprinkling salt and pepper on top. Eat immediately.
(2) Grilled Corn: In this preparation the corn is grilled with the husks on. One choice is to simply place the corn on the grill. If you have a few minutes for prep work, we recommend to do the following: peel back the top of the corn husks so that you can remove the silk hairs on the cob. Then replace the husk and soak the cobs in a bucket or sink of water for anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes.
