It's sweet corn season, and oh boy. We've been over-indulging, if that is even possible. Grilled sweet corn and lots and lots of corn and tomato salads have been on the menu nearly every night. But this brings us to a question we'd like to ask: What is the very best way to get all that pesky corn silk off the ear? What do you do to remove the last stray hairs of silk from your sweet corn? Do you rub it? Wash it? Or do you just tolerate a bit of corn silk in your teeth?
