I don't know about you, but I LOVE fresh sweet corn!!  When the season arrives, I am one of the first in line at the farmstand to get my fill!

Everybody seems to have their own "secret" on how to get a "perfect" ear, but unfortunately some of those tips (like pulling down the top to check the kernels) lead to loss of nutrients and quicker conversion to starch.  

Another way nutrients are lost is in the water when you boil the ears.  Many nutrients are water soluble so they go right down the drain with the water (at least try to use the water on your plants if you do boil!).  Fortunately, there is a method that doesn't require boiling and has the added benefit of getting those silks off easily!!  Check out the video and find out the details!  This was a GAME CHANGER for me, I hope it is for you, too!  ENJOY!!
