I noted that true corn lovers say that if an ear is out of the ground more than 1/2 hour, it's not fit to eat. I stand by that, although, unless one lives in corn country that's impossible.

Best corn I've ever had was at a friend's house. They lived next to a corn field, and the neighbor let them pick whatever they wanted. They had a cookout one day, and they kept a pot of water boiling. When you wanted corn, you picked it off the stalk, husked it, and dropped it in the pot to cook. It was like eating pure sugar.

Friend has since moved, and we all miss eating that corn. It was amazing.
