@farmerman,
It does look a bit mank, I'll give you that. I just googled images. It's probably from someone pissed off about the state of their corn.

I wouldn't buy it.

I normally wait until September when it's in season then buy it down the market where its all unpeeled, like this.

@izzythepush,
yep. we are starting freh corn season now. (Our earlier stuff comes from S Carolina and Georgia where theyve taken over the old cotton fields with vegetables).
I loove sweet corn but its not high on my diet, its like eating a spoonful of white sugar per ear of corn and I can easily eat 4 or 5 with butter). My weight has been on a steady maintenance for about 3 years now and most of it has been due to removing anything WHITE from my diet. (White rice, white bread, white potatoes, more than about 2 glasses of milk per week,and sadly, white sweet corn)

@farmerman,
I normally eat half a corn on the cob, I'd have difficulty eating a whole one let alone four or five.

I never drink milk on its own, I've never got that.

@izzythepush,
corn on the cob is usually a family US tradition in the summer. In clam bakes or barbecues, its an accompaniment that is wished on people
"May you get a good share of corn on the cob this summer, and have enough butter to dressit"


Propwr corn on the cob is where the corn kernels are sweet and milky with no hint of any starchiness (as one would get with older cobs).
Before the days of hybrid suprsweet corn varieties, everyone would have corn in their gardens so whenever one had a family barbecue, the kids would pull and clean the corn just bfore the food was served, and the con would be boiled while folks ate ribs or clams n lobster.

@farmerman,
I've not had any luck growing it, the ears were smaller and tougher than those in the shops, and it came into season in September when the markets are flooded with the stuff.

I stick to soft fruit.

Yep. That’s how we did it.
Well, we didn’t grow corn in our garden, mostly just ‘maters. We lived in NJ, and of course everyone knows about Jersey tomatoes.
We bought our corn from a vegetable stand about half a mile away. Some kid was chosen to shuck it, and the corn went into the pot as we sat down to eat.

So I always think on corn on the cob as dessert.
It’s a damn good dessert.

@chai2,
Not over here, Jersey is famous for its potatoes, the neighbouring island of Guernsey is famous for tomatoes. It even has a museum.

@chai2,
corn needs hot summer nights to grow and ripen. I think its a Merkin thing to chow down on buttered sweet corn (like a dessert).

But my diest requires me to now limit its ingestion, specially slobbered with buttr and fresh ground pepper.

Mexican corn, or white corn is starchy not sweet. It's eaten on the cob with butter, cotija cheese--a hard white cheese, and chili powder or sauce. Lately, corn in a cup has become more popular.
