Sweet corn cobs are long (20-25cm) and cylindrical in shape. The cobs are enclosed in several overlapping, papery-thin, leaf-like, pale green-brown husks. Inside the husks are parallel rows of golden-yellow, small bead-like seeds with soft cotton-like threads (or silks) running from the seeds to the top of the cob. Our kernels have soft skins and are sweet and milky inside.
Contains Vitamin C, low in fact and sugar and is an excellent source of dietary fibre.
Select corn with a green husk. Can be kept for a short time in an airtight bag in refrigerator crisper. Leave husk on to prevent dehydration.
