Quick Overview

Bright yellow sweetcorn is a sign of late summer, an iconic seasonal star. We deliver it with the leaves intact to keep it fresh – natural packaging at its best. Invest just 5 minutes, a pan of boiling water and a generous chunk of butter. This is very hard to beat.



If you’ve more time to spare, our sweetcorn fritters go down a storm. You’ll need enough for seconds.

Cooking

Boil for 4-10 minutes depending on ripeness in unsalted water. Eat with melted butter. Use in fritters or soups. Try sweetcorn on the BBQ by soaking unpeeled cobs in water for an hour and cooking slowly. Turn until the kernels are tender and the leaves turn brown (25-45 mins). The peeled-back leaves make a good handle!

Storage

Best cooked really fresh. Keep in fridge with leaves on - no other packaging needed.

Varieties/season

Late August or early September onwards for a few weeks.
