What to Do with Sweet--Maybe Too Sweet--Fresh Corn

pilinut | Aug 1, 200904:49 PM     41

Somehow, after this morning's visit to the farmers' market, we found ourselves with 24 ears of very corn (12 Brentwood , 12 from somewhere else). We've just eaten a few of the Brentwood ears, and have had a rather odd experience. First bite or two: " WOW! That is the sweetest corn I've ever had." After a quarter of the ear, the sweetness palls, and i am left searching in vain for some kind of corn flavor. By the time I'm halfway done, I can't really taste anything and I'm just trying to finish the rest of the ear.

What happened? Did my tastebuds give out? (I can eat vast quantitites of dessert and enjoy the last cake crumb as much as the first.)

And what would be a good use for this very sweet, but tasteless, corn?
