The day before I was to leave on a two-week trip to visit family, I harvested everything out of my garden that I could. I did not want our hard work to go to waste.
I picked forty ears of corn. Then I sat on the patio and shucked forty ears of corn..... I had to share all but one of those forty ears with various corn worms; the wormy parts had to be cut off with a paring knife. At least the worms were considerate and mostly stayed on the end, leaving the largest portion of the corn for me :) Overall the corn looked beautiful.
After shucking it and getting most of the silks off, take the corn in and rinse it in cool water and put it in a big pot. Cover the corn as best you can with water and turn the stove on high.
