There's nothing that shouts summer louder than the sight of just-picked sweet corn piled high in the back of a pickup parked along the side of a country road. This time of year, I carry a cooler in my trunk, always ready to load it with fresh, fat ears of corn. There's always someplace to stop for some ice to add to the cooler. By keeping the corn cool, I know its sweet flavor will be at its best when I get home and cook it in a pot of simmering water.
