Here’s a trick for you. The only thing is, you’ll have to remember it until July. Maybe August.
In my humble opinion, the best corn is fresh, cut-off-the-cob Silver Queen corn. It’s really the only proper corn in the South and if you doubt that, you are just wrong. Silver Queen has a short life span. It comes to the market sometime in July and it’s usually gone by the end of August.
So here’s the trick: Buy more than you can possibly eat in one sitting. Cut it off the cob. Put it in heavy duty freezer bags. And pop it into the freezer. Don’t cook it beforehand. Don’t add anything to it. It is already perfect. It will taste in January like it tasted in August. Just throw it in a skillet with some butter, salt and pepper.
Heath doesn’t like corn, but this is for my own private corn stash. That’s a thing, right?
