What puzzles me about frozen corn is that some packages say that the frozen corn kernels MUST be cooked before eating but other packages don't bother. I haven't found any reason for this on the internet.

I've never hesitated to put a little frozen corn in a bowl, let them thaw, and sprinkle them on salads. Same with frozen peas. It hasn't killed any of us yet!

Trader Joe's has frozen grilled corn. It's really good, they have those little black char marks on them. I love them thawed in southwestern salads with chipotle ranch.

As kids, we would pick not quite ripe ears right out of the garden and eat them. I loved the white corn ones. And peas? Same thing. Pull the peas, one at a time from the pod with our teeth. Didn't want to lose even one.

I'm sure the best thing to do is grow all your own food, but not everyone is in a position to do that. If I only ate what I grow, I would be very thin, and very very hungry!

Gotta have land to grow corn. Since corn isn't that nutritious, and is not really that good for a diabetic, it's a once in a while treat, and won't be taking up any of my precious garden space.

Corn and potatoes do take up a lot of real estate. We grow potatoes because we have the room (and I still get a kick out of digging potatoes to discover how many the plant has produced). We grow corn because we can. I think we planted 6-8 100 ft. rows this year. We usually process 3-4 garden trailers around the end of August/beginning of September. If buying sweet corn at a roadside stand, it is best to buy it in the morning. The corn is usually picked first thing in the morning. The longer it sits, the starchier it gets.

There are newer varieties that stay sweet much longer, since most people aren't in a position to grow their own.

Newer corn strains have been bred to have a lot more sugar. Since the sugar to starch conversion cannot be stopped, more sugar means it will taste sweet longer.

But I want my corn to taste like corn, not sugar. I miss the taste of fresh corn as it was purchased in the 60's and 70's.
