Koo Wee Rup is better known for its supply of wonderful Asparagus across the Summer months. But in the late summer and into the Autumn, the small Bass Coast town’s focus turns from “spears” to “ears”, as some excellent-quality corn is also grown in the area.

Always peel back the top of the leaves of corn when selecting, to check the quality of the kernels inside. Even if it looks perfect from the outside, it is well worth checking.

Look for corn that is bright yellow, shiny, and free from blemishes. This should ensure it is loaded with flavour and super-juicy.

Corn is fantastically versatile. Toss it through salads, mash it onto toast, or prepare some classic corn-fritters. Or simply grill, steam or bake, and enjoy straight from the cob! Delicious!
