Fresh sweet corn is everywhere right now. The fresher the corn the better it tastes. The sugars in corn break down to a starch very quickly once the corn is picked. When picking corn it isn’t necessary to peel it back to look at it piece. Look at the tassels, they should be brown and sticky, if it is dried out the corn is old. You can feel the ears of corn and feel if the kernels are plump. If not using the corn the day you buy it put in the refrigerator in the vegetable drawer, Watch of the Fresh From Florida labels when out shopping or when dining out.
The Fresh From Florida website has a list of restaurants that participate in the program. The restaurants feature fresh produce grown by Florida farmers and seafood caught in Florida waters.
Florida Sweet Corn with Southern Barbecue Butter is featured this month.
When I was growing up there was only 1 way we ate sweet corn. It was boiled and coated with butter and salt. I remember when the corn got ripe my mom always ordered it from a local farm and he delivered it in an old truck. We would shuck it on the front porch into an old paper bag. Then mom would cook it quickly in a big pot of boiling water. That corn was soooooo good!
