Good source of fiber, vitamin C and folate.
What To Look For
Freshly picked, moist, green husk and silks; plump, glossy kernels without spaces between them.
Easy Storage and Preparation
Best eaten within a few hours of purchase. Will keep for a day or two if refrigerated in husks. Remove husk and silks only when ready to cook.
Cook, covered in simmering, salted water, for 3 to 5 minutes. Cut the kernels from the cob and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Or peel back the husk, remove the silks, soak in water, sprinkle with lime juice and salt, and put the husk back in place. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes.
