Fresh Things Video: Zellwood Corn–sweeter than any other corn!

Have you heard of Zellwood Corn from Long and Scott Farms?

This triple-sweet corn is only available for a short time*, but while it’s here, you don’t want to miss it!

Summer is here and that means it’s time for Long and Scott’s Triple Sweet Zellwood Corn.

Picked and chilled daily, Zellwood corn holds its sugar better than any other corn variety grown. 

Grown off Lake Apopka in Lake County, Florida, this seasonal gem is prized by chefs throughout the country for their tender kernels and ultra-sweet flavor.

How to use it?

Consider using it raw, straight off the cob–toss with a little lime juice, chili peppers, cilantro, onions, and a little mayonnaise for an elote-style corn salad.

Better yet, soak whole ears in lightly salted water and throw on the grill and you have a wonderful grilled corn side for summer barbecues.

 

 

 

*Zellwood corn is generally available from late-April into late-May, but can vary a little depending on the crop that year. Contact your Marketing Associate about adding some to your next order. If you are not a customer, find out how to become one today!
