Default Corn

When you shop for corn on the cob, do you pull down the husk before you
buy it to look inside?

Do you ever reject corn because it doesn't look good?

What does "not look good" mean? Why would you reject an ear of corn?

Yes and yes. If it's typical yellow corn, I look for kernels that are still whitish, indicating that it's not yet ripe. A good test is to pierce a kernel with your thumb nail. If it squirts juice, it's ripe; If not, it's either premature or dead.

Just buy it fresh from the neighbours stand ...
any modern road-side stand will have good fresh corn -
no need to check.,
Many years ago, when charged with getting corn for
The Family Rebellion - we picked-our-own, without checking -
and discovered a lot of worms .. we just cut out the bad parts &
it was ok .. I have never seen that in any farm-stands.
The other thing to check for is freshness - do the kernels look
bursting with freshness ? or a little limp ?
We would almost never buy from a grocery store.

Corn is genetically modified, covered in glyphosate and has a high glycemic index.* It's basically a cancer trifecta.* Why anyone would eat that **** is beyond me.

If the kernals are shrivelled or undersize or not mature (still
white) or wormy - or so ripe they are hard.

You must be Cherman - it's only recently that Germans eat corn -
kernel or on cob - it's always been "pig feed"

If you buy it at a local farm stand, chang=ces are it is very good.
Maybe a part of one ear in a season is sub par but usually they are
excellent.

I never buy corn at the supermarket.
