OK I SWEAR that Im searching and going through all the past posts (Im on pg 68) but Im trying to find out how to use corn. Do you actually take the raw corn off the cob or do you have to dehydrate it before eating it?
Also, I ordered Alissas book! Yippie I cant wait to get it :p

I love raw corn! I eat it right off of the cob. In fact, I roll it in olive oil, and add a dash of Lemon Pepper (no salt) and sea salt on it. It's devine! Make sure you get sweet corn.
Also, I will cut off the kernles, put it in a salad with salsa that I make...it's to die for! Yum!

I too love raw corn! No oil, no salt, just plain, fresh out of the garden. YUM!
And to think that for way too many years, and I grew up on fresh grown corn, I never had a clue! Always cooked, always buttered. Always SAD.

Cut it off the cob; add other veggies and a tahini dressing. Can get this from Storm and Jinjee's ebook.
Alissa has corn chips which are delightful. Superb book.
Corn Salad with Cilantro Dressing
4 fresh Corn Cobs, stripped
1 diced Red Bell Pepper
1 Avocado, cubed
1 minced Garlic
1 small Onion
½ Jalapeno Pepper
1 small bunch Cilantro
1 Lime, juiced
½ tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
2 tsp Flax or Olive Oil
½ tsp Cumin Powder
In a medium bowl, combine the corn, red bell pepper & avocado. Set aside. In a blender, Vita-Mix or food processor, combine the dressing ingredients. Pulse until the cilantro is finely chopped. Mix the dressing with the salad. Enjoy!

Corn is like RAW candy! You can't hardly just have one piece. I don't do anything to it but eat it all by itself. Raw and yummy!

So I did it...I ate raw corn today. It was organic and from whole foods but it really didnt have any taste. It was in my fridge for 2 days so maybe that has something to do with it. It was OK but Id be fine not eating again :)

I like making a summer salad with raw corn, tomato and summer squash, tossed with olive oil and celtic sea salt.

I had raw corn straight off the cob yesterday for the first time and it was amazing. Will be eating that all the time now.

Oh I LOVE fresh raw sweet corn, with just a touch of lemon juice, and a dash of salt, oh YUMMMY!!!

Raw corn is so much more lovely to eat than cooked.. it doesn't get stuck in your teeth and has the most amazing crunch!
Take it off the cob, with a little avocado, a little cherry tomato.. some Olive oil & ACV.. mmm
I don't eat it much anymore. All the talk of GM & mycotoxins turned me away from it, but to each their own. It also makes me feel tired.
