The Q&A Archives: Storing shucked corn

Question: What us the best way to store shucked corn, and how long can it last?? Thank you

Answer: Once the ears have been harvested from the plant, they begin to convert the sugars into starches. For this reason they should be cooked and eaten as soon as possible after harvesting. Ears without the silks and husks to protect them from dehydration degrade in a matter of hours. So, if you have lots of corn, you might want to blanch and freeze the kernals or can them for later use.
