The Instacart guide to red corn

About red corn

A type of sweet corn, red corn is an interesting grain crop that can add flavor and color to your favorite recipes. You can identify red corn from its lime-green husks and, of course, its red kernels. The kernels have a deep red brick color interlaced with cream and pink. When cooked, red corn's flavor has a sweetness and nuttiness that makes it stand out from its more common corn siblings.

The trick to storing corn is keeping it from drying out. If you're not preparing it for today's dinner, wrap it tightly in a plastic bag and keep it in the refrigerator. We suggest not purchasing corn you don't plan on eating for the next three days. If you can't get around to preparing your corn, you can put it in the freezer to avoid it turning into an unappetizing starchy treat.

If you're going to freeze corn, you'll likely have the best results from blanching either the whole cob or the kernels before you place it in the freezer. Boil some water, and boil the corn for a minute or two. Then, place the corn in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Dry them a bit, place them in freezer bags, and keep them in the freezer for up to one year.
