Corn Tips

How to Pick

For an ear of corn with the husk on, its tassels should be brown and slightly sticky. You should be able to feel plump evenly spaced kernels through the husk.

How to Store

To keep corn fresh the longest, store the ears of corn still in their husk in the refrigerator.

How to Remove Husk

Microwave corn in husk for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and place on a cutting board. Cut ¼ inch off the bottom of the ear of corn. Grab the top of corn with the tassels and husk and slowly start squeezing the ear of corn down along the husk so the ear of corn slides out of the husk bottoms. This should remove most of those pesky silks.
