How To PIck Fresh Corn

How to Pick Fresh Corn

The trick to delicious grilled corn is no secret — use freshly harvested ears. The longer they sit on the shelf, the starchier and less sweet the kernels will taste.

Spotting the freshest corn isn't hard; here's how: 1. Look for silk that's pale in color, a little sticky, and brown at the very tips.

  1. The tops of the ears should feel filled in with the kernels developed right to the ends.

  2. The cut should be fresh, moist, and free of spots. Old cuts take on a rusty look.

  3. Ripe kernels release a milky juice. An overripe ear is dry and tough.
