Corn is a sweet and starchy vegetable that be eaten raw or cooked. It is in season in Illinois typically from July until October.
For fresh corn with leaves intact, choose those that are green with white to yellow silk inside. You can refrigerate corn for up to 1 to 2 days, so make sure to enjoy it as soon as possible! A 15-ounce can of corn is equivalent to 1 and 3/4 cups of fresh, cooked corn kernels.
