Corn's Ready!!! How to Pick and cook Corn
If your corn meets those standards it's ready to be picked. The explanation of how to do this is more complex than the action really is. Grab the corn and pull it back (away from the stalk) and down(toward the ground) in one motion. I usually grab the corn with my hand upside down thumb pointing down. Then to completely release the corn lift it straight up.
Now on to cooking these babies. Fill a large pot with water and add 1/2 C. of sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Once the water is boiling add the corn and cook for no more than 8 minutes. Remove from the water and slather in butter and salt! Yumm!
