Growing Instructions for Corn
Corn is ready when the ears are completely filled and a pierced kernel shows a milky white liquid. A good sign of readiness is when the silk turns brown and crisp.
Corn can be preserved in many different ways. The most common ways being freezing, canning and pickling. You can also remove the kernels from the cobs and dry them in a food dehydrator or a low oven for a longer shelf life. This is also how to prepare popcorn varieties. Another common practice is to dry out the corn cobs after the kernels have been removed and use the cobs as fire starters or to smoke certain types of food.
