About this time each year in the lower south comes one of my favorite seasons, the harvesting of the sweet Silver King corn from the fields in Baldwin county, Loxley AL to be exact. Now I've already told you the varying types of sweet corn and what to look for in finding the sweetest. And I've mentioned before the importance of picking corn early in the morning before the sun gets too high, keeping it cold on ice as you transport it home, all in the sake of retaining the sweetness and the just picked flavor. But I'll say this one more time – it is very important to get on with however you plan on its storage before the sugars turn to starch. Otherwise, you might as well settle for the taste of what we call field corn being full of starch, which is okay to eat but as my granddaddy put it, is better leaving behind for the deer and turkeys.
