Although it is early to harvest, summer dictates the rules: June 11 is painted in bright sunny banners wishing you a happy Corn on the Cob Day. To enhance this expressive taste, add salt, butter, soy sauce, curry, or coconut milk.
Corn was actively grown on the territory of modern Mexico 10 thousand years ago. The plant species evolved; the grains grew in size. Sweet corn varieties were developed by scientists from the University of Illinois in the middle of the last century.
The sweet taste of corn on cob persists for only a short period. For this reason, it is essential to harvest at the right time to enjoy the full taste of this treat.
- An obvious sign of ripe corn is soft-to-the-touch kernels.
- Corn can be cooked with different methods: boiling, grilling on the stove or open fire, and eating it raw as a side dish.
- Corn can be processed into crumbs.
It is added to cosmetics and medicines, to help with the destruction of infections, bacteria, and microbes.
