I have a couple of questions for you again, of course. This summer I was able to buy corn very cheap, at times, six for $.96! It worked out to be about $.16 each. How cheap is that? How cheap was corn where you live?
It was one of those things, like peeling bananas. I asked SO to help prepare the corns for boiling. The task consisted of:
1) peel-off the leaves (ears), break-off the bottom part (stem), and cut-off the mustache (silks).
We went on with our tasks until I glanced over to check-out SO. To my surprise, or shock, all the corns were stark-naked. As I come to understand, he has always seen his family peeled all of the ears off - all the way...stark-naked corn. I have been taught or absorbed somewhere to leave a few ears on the corn to cover the kernels. I find that having the ears on while boiling them help hold in the juice, and keep the kernels fresh longer. I also have found that when the corn is boiled stark naked, the kernels will wrinkle faster if not consumed right away. But there is always exceptions...
Here are Self Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions #104
1) How do you prepare corn for cooking?
2) What do you like to eat corn with? (butter, other food?)
By the way please remember to add me to your circles.Thanks!
