Corn, How Not to Cook It

Field GoodsOut of the BagLeave a Comment

raw sweet cornThis week, we are delivering super sweet, super fresh corn. Holmquest Farm and Barber’s Farm grow these particular varieties because they are super sweet and frankly taste more like candy corn than the regular stuff. The corn has a short shelf life, which is why you won’t find them in the grocery stores. Eat them as soon as possible.

We’d like to suggest that you try eating the corn raw…just take a bite or cut the kernels from the cob. If you are inclined to cook the corn, just drop it in boiling water for a minute or two. But, honestly we’d really recommend going raw.

For a super easy summer salad, toss with diced cucumbers and tomatoes, then drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Add red onion or garlic and an herb like basil or mint. More info
