Summer without fresh corn is like summer without sunshine.
When shopping, be sure to look for fresh corn with light green husks that cover the entire ear. Gently pull back on the upper part of the husk to examine the first few rows of kernels. They should be fresh, tightly aligned, and never browned or mushy.
Fresh homegrown sweet corn is better than what you can buy at the store. Eat your garden fresh corn raw, right off the stalk or grill it for a delicious summer treat.
