    Cook's tips

    For the sweetest flavour, sweetcorn should be cooked soon after purchase. Sugars start turning to starch once cobs are picked.

    To boil sweetcorn, cook in a large pan of water for 5-7 minutes, then drain well. Do not add salt to the water because this will toughen the kernels.

    Fresh sweetcorn should have plump yellow kernels with no sign of shrivelling.

    To strip off the kernels, hold the cob upright on a board and, working downwards and away from you, cut away the kernels using a large sharp knife, turning the cob after each cut.
