Buying Tips

Peak season for fresh corn is May through September. Good quality white or yellow corn should have fresh green, tightly fitting husks, with golden brown silk, and tip ends that are free of decay. Ears should be evenly covered with plump, consistently sized kernels. Avoid corn that has been on display with husks pulled back, or with discolored or dry-looking husks, stem ends, or kernels.

Varieties

Today, the most popular varieties of corn are white (Country Gentleman) and yellow (Golden Bantam). Yellow corn has larger, buttery-flavored kernels, while white corn kernels are smaller and sweeter. Blue corn (which is literally blue) has the widest range of flavor components and is often used as an ingredient in chips.

Canned and frozen corn are widely available, and dehydrated corn is a common ingredient in trail mixes.

Everyone’s favorite movie partner, popcorn, is made from a corn variety that “pops” when exposed to dry heat, forming a featherweight, white, starchy mass many times the size of the original kernel. Most often served plain or topped with butter, popcorn is also sold topped with cheese, caramel, and other flavorings.

Indian corn has white, red, purple, brown, or multicolored kernels. It was the original corn grown by American Indians and is often used in the fall for decoration.

Tiny cobs of baby corn, often found in Thai or Chinese cooking, are sold in cans or jars. Fresh baby corn is also available and can be enjoyed either raw or cooked.
