Oh, how I miss living beside a field of silver queen, with permission to pick my own at will! Corn I find in Louisiana that is advertised as "sweet corn" does not seem to make the grade. Trips to South Carolina have to be planned to perfection to match the fullness of the kernels. The heck with grilling and herb butter (although marvelous): this corn is fine twirled on a stick of plain butter with no other adornments necessary. And can be blanched in the dishwasher for freezing until later! only a home-grown tomato can come close to an ear of Silver Queen.
