Types of Corn
There are hundreds of different types of corn grown in the United States and around the world each year. These types of corn all fall into one of four primary categories: flint, dent, sweet and popcorn. While dent corn is the type of corn used most commonly, primarily as livestock feed, sweet corn is what we love to eat in our favorite sweet corn recipes like Fresh Corn Cakes and Corn 'n' Black Bean Salsa.
How to Shuck Corn
Once you've learned all about the different types of corn and their use, visit our page about how to shuck corn and watch Howard as he shows us how easy it is to break the golden nuggets from their husk. Shucking corn is super simple with these three steps, and using your freshly shucked corn in recipes like Farm-Fresh Corn Salad and Corn Relish have never been easier or more satisfying!

Having fresh corn year-round is key to making these sweet corn recipes like Stacked Taco Salad and Seasoned Corn Spreads. On this page, you'll learn how to freeze corn on the cob, how to freeze corn kernels, and how to store corn on the husk.
