I just bought a few ears of sweet corn that have an especially large amount of corn fungus on the silks. Usually the fungus looks slimy and dirty, and I have no desire to eat them.
This time, however, the ears were especially fresh and the huitlacoche looks clean and dry. Can I just pick it off and use it in cooking? Do I need to rinse it in water?
Does anyone have a suggestion for a simple preparation (something really easy, like sauteeing with garlic)?
