How To Keep Sweet Corn Fresh

How To Store Sweet Corn

Our pure white sweet corn is suitable to eat raw without cooking, so we called it “Fruit Corn” which means eat like fruit. It is more sweet, crunchy, and juicy when you eat fresh. Most of our customers like to eat fresh without cooking.

After you bought sweet corn please keep it in the hotel that you stay at Cameron if you are not going back on the same day. Whether Cameron Highlands is cool, keep in a hotel that is not under the hot sun is your best choice.

DO NOT: Keep in the car throughout the day

When the way to drive back to your home, keep the sweet corn in the back seat of the car so that can feel air cond. It is no problem how long your journey is, no matter 5 or 10 hours.

When you reach your home, keep all sweet corns in the refrigeration immediately. Tie up the plastic bag for the sweet corn and put it in the fridge. The end of the cob faces outside, if not your plastic bag will be broken because sometimes the end of the cob is sharp. Some customers like to remove outside leaves, just leave a few leaves to keep in the fridge. Actually, this is not the right way. The leaf of sweet corn protects the sweet corn avoiding losing the freshness and sweetness of the sweet corn. If you just leave a few leaves of sweet corn, the freshness will start losing and cannot keep more days. You no need to remove the leaf of the sweet corn because our sweet corn leaf is less. When you buy our sweet corn, just put it in a plastic bag, tight it then keeps it in the fridge. After one week, the sweetness of sweet corn will be lost from day to day. It still can eat, just not too fresh after keep more than a week.

You can eat it raw, take it out from the fridge, and can eat it immediately. When you take it out from the fridge and eat it is the same as you eat when you are at Cameron Highlands.  You can keep one week plus in the fridge. If you don’t like eat-in raw, you can cook it. Normally we boil or steam it. After the water boil, take our sweet corn from the fridge, remove the husk and silk put it into the hot water. Boil 1 or 2 minutes, our sweet corn can eat. If you like steam, around 5-7 minutes can eat. Our sweet corn is soft and epidermis is thin, cook very fast can eat.

NOT ALL types of sweet corn cooked for a few minutes can eat. Cooking time is depend on the different types of sweet corn. Some sweet corn is harder and needs to cook a long time. The pearl corn normally needs to cook at least 10 minutes, some yellow corn needs to cook for 30 minutes. Our sweet corn is special, different from other types of sweet corn.

Suggestion: Finish the sweet corn in a week’s time.

Why Our Cameron Sweet Corns Is Good

Why Our Cameron Sweet Corns Are Good?

Our white sweet corn is called “Fruit corn”, which means eat the sweet corn like a fruit. Just eat our sweet corn raw, without cooking. You can taste the most original and fresh taste of corn. Our sweet corn is sweet, juicy, and crunchy. Our customers after eating our white sweet corn, don’t want the bi-color (yellow and white) sweet corn. So we just plant the white sweet corn and no more plant the bi-color pearl corn. Our customers will come back because they cannot find the same taste as our sweet corn anywhere.

Here is the list of the aspect of why our Cameron sweet corns are different from others:

  1. Corn Seed

Normal corn seed for a bottle costs about RM50-RM100, but our white sweet corn seeds have cost us over one thousand just a small package. The cost of corn seed is 10 times more expensive than the normal corn. We import the white sweet corn seeds from America. We import the best quality sweet corn seed from America that you cannot find on the market. We are the only one plant this type of white sweet corn in Malaysia.

2. Growing Period

Sweet corn will take 100 days to grow to get ready for harvest on Cameron Highlands, but it just takes 50-55 days if sweet corn is planted in Ipoh, Kelantan, or another hot place. The longer the growing period, the sweet corn taste will better.

3. Weather

Everybody knows Cameron Highlands is one of the highest mountains in west Malaysia. Cameron Highlands has a cool temperature of 15-25’C throughout the year. Cool weather makes all plants grow slowly. Cool weather will let the sweet corn sweeter and juicy.

4. Hot Sun

Cameron Highlands is located at the mountain, the hot sun is less compared with Kuala Lumpur.  The majority of the year in Cameron is cloudy or rainy, seldom got hot sun. The humidity is low here. Our sweet corn husks are light green because of the hot sun not much. For those corn plants at a hot place like Ipoh, Kelantan, corn husks are a dark green color.

5. Water

The majority of the farm at Cameron is using water from the mountain. We found the mouth of spring from the mountain and connect to our farm. The water comes from the stone inside the earth, not supplied by TNB. The water is fresh and clean. Our white sweet corn got much water inside and it tastes very juicy.

6. Fertilizer

We make some enzymes to fertilizer our sweet corn. It is considered half organic.

Many customers ask why our white sweet corn is sweet like honey? I think this is because of our fertilizer and water. We stop pesticides one month before harvest, all our customers feel safe when eating white sweet corn raw, without cooking. The taste of our sweet corn is the best, hard to explain.  Once you taste it, you never forgot.

Our customers will not buy corn at another stall after tasting our white sweet corn. If you do not believe please come to our stall to taste it! 🙂
