I have been trying to find the best way to put up corn on the cob for a special treat in February.
I found this, I'll be giving it a shot.
Freezing corn actually keeps fresh cobs good for up to a year. If you can buy it fresh, pack it immediately into freezer bags with the husk and silk intact. When you unfreeze, it will be crisp and succulent.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
The silk just appeared on my corn, it won't be long now!
Seems there's some sweet corn experts here.
I am growing it for the first time this year. My younger son insisted, and of course I gave in. I have to admit that I don't have a clue when it will approximately be ready, and how to judge when it at its peak. Anybody willing to enlighten me?
I'm no expert, but I typically just peel a couple of cobs back and see how it looks. If the kernels look really small and white it's not quite ready. When the kernels look nicely developed and are starting to turn yellow then it's picking time.
