• Corn

Corn is an American favorite, oftentimes a “summertime side dish” featured at backyard barbecues or as a staple food used to make tortillas or polenta. 

Care & Handling

Selection: 

Corn husks should be green and have visible kernels that are plump and tightly packed on the cob.

Storage: 

To maintain the flavor and sweetness of corn, keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Preparation: 

Remove husks from the corn prior to boiling or microwaving. Husks should also be removed if corn is going to be wrapped in aluminum foil for grilling.

Nutrition & Health Benefits: 

Corn has many health benefits and is a terrific source of vitamin C, fiber and the mineral manganese – not to mention several antioxidant phytonutrients.
