Not to Brag, but I Always Pick the Best Corn. Here’s How I Do It. — Tips from The Kitchn

I have a peculiar problem: I’m frequently stopped in the grocery store for advice about picking produce. This phenomenon is not stopped by the two whining kids in my cart or the sometimes-harried expression on my face when I’m running into the store for a last-minute ingredient. But I’ve always got an answer ready since the same advice applies to many fruit and vegetables: It should feel heavy for its size, inspect for dry or soft spots, and give it a smell.

When it comes to corn-selecting advice, I’ve got a lot to say. Sure, I have a very strong opinion about how you should be choosing corn at the supermarket, but then I’ve also never picked a bad ear in my life.
