While fresh corn cooked and eaten on the cob is a ubiquitous summertime meal, the kernels scraped off the cob make a versatile addition to a wide variety of dishes, from salads to salsa. Corn kernels cooking can briefly intensify their flavor. Corn is a good source of fiber and nutrients, such as vitamin B-6 and folate, but it is also high in simple sugars like sucrose. To include corn in a balanced diet, eat it in moderation.
In the Microwave
Put the corn kernels in a microwave-safe bowl. Add water, using approximately 2 tablespoons of water for every 2 cups of corn.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave on the highest setting for one to two minutes. Pull away the plastic wrap and stir the corn kernels.
Replace the plastic wrap and microwave on high for two to three more minutes. Drain the corn carefully and use as desired.
On the Stovetop
Heat canola or olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Plan on 2 teaspoons of the oil for every cup of corn kernels.
Add the corn kernels to the skillet. Cook until the kernels are light golden in color, stirring frequently with a spatula or wooden spoon, for about five minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat. Allow the kernels to cool and add your choice of seasonings.
In the Oven
Put the corn kernels in a large bowl. Add a small amount of vegetable oil and your choice of seasonings.
Stir the kernels with a large spoon to coat them thoroughly. Arrange the corn in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet that’s been lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray.
Roast the corn at 450 degrees Fahrenheit until the kernels begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Stir the corn several times during the cooking time to keep the kernels from sticking to the baking sheet.

Corn kernels must always keep in the freezer, cannot defrost. How many do you eat only take out, cook immediately after taking out from the freezer. Please get ready the water boil or the cooking material, then take out the corn kernel from the freezer and put corn kernel in the water/cooking material immediately. Let the corn kernels with ice when cooking, when the ice melt, the corn kernel looks big mean can eat. Our corn kernel is soft, and very fast can eat. The balance closes back the plastic bag and keeps it in the freezer again. Cannot wait for the ice to melt at room temperature, it will spoil.
