Farmer's Market Favorites
Southern Living Farmers Market Cookbook shows you how to select, store, and cook summer's freshest produce.
Select: A fresh husk is the number one thing to look for. Deep brown silk tips or ends mean it's ripe, but the whole silk shouldn't be dried up. Open the tip of the husk to see if the kernels are all the way to the end of the ear; kernels should be plump and milky when pinched.
Store: The sugars in corn begin to turn to starch as soon as it's harvested, so plan to eat it as soon as possible. You can store it in its husk in the refrigerator up to a day.
Cook: Fresh Corn Cakes
