How to Choose Fresh Corns
Corn on the cob should be as fresh as
possible. If it is not home grown, "U-pick-it" is the next best
guarantee of freshness. While refrigeration will slow down the
sugar-to-starch conversion process, it will not stop it, and freshness
diminishes each hour that passes from field to table. A good farm stand
or farmer's market can be the best commercial source for fresh corn,
but beware of corn that is picked the afternoon before sale or is
picked early in the morning and allowed to languish in the sun until
you buy it. It would be better in that case to buy supermarket corn
that has been refrigerated or at least handled in cool surroundings.
During the high season most farmers pick more than once a day and will
be glad to tell you when they are bringing in freshly picked corn.
