Let’s keep our summer garden series rolling with another popular veggie: fresh summer corn.
The season for corn is July through August. Corn is low in fat and full of fiber and B vitamins. Look for ears of corn with green shucks, moist stems, and silk ends that are free of decay. Kernels should be small, tender, plump, and should fill all the spaces in the rows. When storing fresh corn, keep it unshucked, wrapped in damp paper towels, inside a plastic bag in the refrigerator until ready to use. The shelf life is usually four to six days.
