While you have been able to get super-sweet varieties in the supermarket, the older varieties of Jersey Corn have just started in full swing. While the modern super-sweets are sweet indeed, they don't taste very much of corn. The old varieties taste very much of the essence of corn.
There is an old adage on how to cook corn:
- get the water boiling
- go outside and pick the corn
- run to the boiling pot.
That's because the sugars in them are unstable and quickly begin to convert to starch, the moment the corn is harvested. We think it's more than worth it, so we'll be starting our corn menu this Sunday, July 26th.
The menu will be offered in Stage Left starting Monday and through the following week.
