This time of year, the sweet corn is good enough to eat... raw. Yes, that's right. Don't bother cooking your sweet corn, or, for that matter, even cutting it off the cob.

I've had raw sweet corn salads, but I had never just eaten an entire ear of sweet corn totally raw. Not until last week, that is, when I ate this luscious, crisp ear of corn up at The Chef's Garden in Huron, Ohio. (Look for a full tour sometime in the next week or two — it's quite a place!) It was so sweet — it tasted like milky corn candy.

And it's a good reminder: When corn is this good, you don't need to cook it.

Do you ever eat raw sweet corn straight off the cob? What else do you do with raw corn?
