I wish the corn growers in the State of Georgia would get a clue as to growing sweet corn. C’mon, people, Silver Queen was a good variety 50+ years ago. There are much better varieties now. Also, sweet corn should be picked before it takes on a field corn texture- when 5-8 minutes in boiling water is more than enough cooking. The water should be boiling before the corn’s added! People around here add sugar to the cold water, put in the corn, turn on the heat, and let it go for 20 minutes!!! Yes, I know grilled sweet corn’s very good too, but sometimes one doesn’t want to fire up the grill for a couple ears of corn.
I think that if anyone around here would plant some good bi-color corn like Peaches N’ Cream, folks would quit eating so much of their abominable creamed corn.
Don’t even get me started on the differences between southern and midwestern tomatoes.
