soooo I passed on the asparagus once more when I remembered I bought two ears of corn yesterday :roll: ! I cooked it tonight and it was delish for May corn! From Florida....got it at Market Basket (New England Monkeys). It looked fresh, tassels moist. It was very good....highly recommend! Select your own pieces. MB sells it in a package ....that is just not right :wink: ...select your own 'ears'! Obviously the Florida Monkeys know the May corn is good...not summer great ...but very good! (I know...I need to get a life! :lol: )

Tassles are the brown strings at the end of the husk. Moist means corn has not dried out.

I guess Florida corn season is May...though nothing mentioned in this week's food ads.
By July 4th, I'm thinking they say it is Georgia corn...or north.

Our problem is to cook it when it is fresh...off the stalk.
Occasionally, we thought we were able to do that with August corn in New York!

I seldom have corn on the cob, but when I do, I want Silver Queen, and I now cook it in the microwave. Easy-peasy.

Yes, I cook corn in the microwave too wrapped in a damp paper towel.
We had corn Friday as I saw it in Aldi, it was okay but not as good as the local summer stuff.

Silver Queen was our favorite too. In Billerica we had a local farm near our house that picked the corn daily and it was always so good. Sometimes it was the main event of our dinner.....with a side of protein :D

Funny for quite a few years after we moved here, the corn here in Florida just never measured up and we passed on buying it for years. The past 3-4 years it has been very good. At our grocery stores we can shuck it right there and just put the ears in a plastic bag to take home which is very convenient. Most of the times it is the yellow and white blend but a real treat when we get the all white variety.

I just do it the old fashioned way in boiling water but have used the microwave too.

I cook it the old fashioned way also....boil the water (no salt), put the corn into boiling water and cook for 7 minutes (from the farm stand here that was my favorite)...works for me. Husband cooks it in microwave with some of the husks left on....I like my way better :wink:

You have not had corn until you've had summer corn from Nebraska. It's the best. Andy's Candy is my fave. Sweet kernels that pop with flavor. It's the yellow and white mixed kind. So good that it doesn't need anything but cooking. No salt, no butter, no pepper, no sugar in the water when you boil. Even better is to cook it on the grill.

I never salt or butter my Silver Queen either.

Linda....even I'm not touching that one.....although, now that I think about it....asking "Are your tassels moist?" does sound pretty suggestive :lol: :lol: :lol: Can you imagine asking the produce manager at your store...."Excuse me....Are your tassels moist?" I am going to be giggling all day.
