Purchasing Sweet Corn
Fresh sweet corn is at its peak in August. There are three types of fresh corn generally available: yellow, white and bicolor. Yellow corn has large, full-flavored kernels and white corn has small, sweeter-flavored kernels. Bicolor corn has both yellow and white kernels. Select ears of corn with soft, bright green husks that fit tightly against the kernels. The silk should be golden and moist like grass. Avoid tearing back the husk to inspect the corn as this causes the kernels to lose moisture and freshness.
How to Grill Corn on the Cob in the Husks
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Pull back husks of corn, leaving husks attached at bottom of each ear; discard silk. Return husks to original position; then soak in water 10 min. Grill 15 min. or until corn is tender, turning occasionally.
