Corn is a delicious and nutritious staple vegetable that certainly does not need to be cooked or popped to create a delightful accompaniment to any raw meal. To prepare, simply peal off the outer husks and remove the silk. You can then eat it straight off the cob and enjoy its naturally sweet and fresh flavor. If you happen to like that salty buttery taste, you can try drizzling some cold pressed olive oil on the cobs and dusting them with finely ground sea salt. You can also use a sharp knife to remove the corn seeds from the cob. The seeds can then be put directly in salads, served as a side dish, or processed into recipes to add a yummy sweet flavor and bulking agent.
