Fresh from the field! I always trim it down a bit, leaving husks and refrigerate in a plastic bag.
Trimming them saves space, makes for less silk mess and keeps the bag from being punctured.
Ready to store in the refrigerator... Seal bag with a twist tie.
I dump the husks into my compost bin.
To husk, pull most of the silk along with greens.
I cut ends flat for so our corn handles insert easily...
Molly gets the small tip tops.
Molly stays close by whenever corn is out. We now only give her this tiny tip after learning a whole cob can be dangerous. dogcare.dailypuppy.com/can-do…
I always put SUGAR, not salt in the pot to cook cobs. Salt makes it tough. Sugar enhances its sweet flavor! (1-2 tsps)
Bring JUST to boil.... Then remove and cover. Do not boil.
Keep covered in hot water. Serve hot.
We picked up this handy corn butter-er. You press plastic piece to slide butter out.
Great summer meal from our garden! See my guide for how to make these Stuffed Zucchini Boats.
This bi-color corn, fresh from the garden, with butter and salt tastes wonderful!
We used to let Molly eat a warm stripped cob and she loves them but a vet warned us, (& I Googled it further)that corn cobs are dangerous potentially for obstructing their digestive tract!
