I have not ever grown corn, but I have heard a lot of discussion about sweet corn varieties. Do you ever read Mother Earth News? I did at the library yesterday. There was a mini article about how to eat sweet corn all winter, how to store it, and they are asking readers to try it, and to report back. You might be a good candidate. It involve pulling whole stalks and hanging them in an unheated storage building. You might enjoy reading it.

I'm a faithful subscriber/reader of Mother Earth News and that article fascinated me. I just scoured their website in hopes of posting the link for that article but couldn't find it online even thou it's in my magazine. Was hoping to share it with others here. I'm thinking of trying that with a few of my own sweet corn and hang them upside down in my shed to eat sometime during the winter.

Peaches and Cream? OK—I eat bread and butter corn- It’s the yellow and white- That is what we call it here anyways- Isn’t it funny how there are many different names for the same thing- I though the only yellow corn was field corn for the animals- and that is why it’s so tough- Just what I thought.

Actually, ever since my hubby introduced me to field corn, I prefer that over sweet corn. If it's picked at just the right time, can be sweeter than sweet corn. Come to think of it, I need to do some checking to see if it's ready to pick yet. Also, if you like to grill your sweet corn, try adding alot of sugar to the water you soak the ears in and soak it overnight, then grill them. My bro did that last weekend for the b-day party they threw for my niece and it was heaven.

yellow corn - Corn on the cob, YUM!
Well my fav is candy corn!:oD Ok to be serious, I like yellow corn better than cream corn. I think it's cause corn on the cob is so great with the salt, pepper and butter, the cream corn just can't do it for me. Hubby and the girls, now they LOVE cream corn. I can't ever fix enough for them. LOL

I think Green Giant brand calls it "Mexicorn" ...couldn't swear to it, but I'm pretty sure. Gotta drain it good and get the butter good and hot before adding the can of corn. It's faster than making making it fresh, but not quite as good.

I am with you, I love the peaches and cream corn! The yellow corn is ok, but when buying it from some of the farmers in our town, we know where the ones with the peaches and cream corn set to sell it, and that is where I go first. If they are not there, then I will just buy the yellow corn and be kind of dull.

We only get two types of corn around here, one is butter and sugar corn, which is a mix of white and yelloe and silver queen corn which is all white. I like the silver queen best but will take either...lol.

I'm definately with you on the peaches and cream corn - it tastes really good and sweet. Although I will eat yellow corn, it just has to be smothered in butter. My grandfather used to grow corn in his garden. I loved having fresh corn on the cob - I miss that :)
