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.

X used to say that the only proper way to cook corn was to:
bring the water to a boil,
go to the garden and pick the ear(s)
RUN (do not walk) with the corn back to the house-preferably shucking while running.
put corn in boiling water.
Ideally this would all happen in 30 seconds.

The only acceptable alternative was to bring a camp stove out to the garden.

peace & corn
