How to make sweetcorn for fried rice with fresh corn at home.
HOMEMADE SWEET CORN RECIPE.
Fresh yellow corn
bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
White vinegar (Preservative)
A glass jar
Separate the corn grains from the cob. Wash and add to a pot, pour in enough water, add little salt & a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda then boil till its done and edible. (If your corn is not yellow enough, you can drop in a small quantity of fresh turmeric into the boiling corn grains, to give it that shiny yellow color)
Once it’s done, seive out excess water and pour the corn grains in a glass jar. Now add 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar, a pinch of salt and few drops of white vinegar.
Boil hot water and pour into the corn jar, pour at least till the water covers the grains, stir very well with a spoon and cover.
You can start using at once or from the next day. The more it stays in the jar water, the more soft it gets.
Note :This can last for at least one week or more with or without freezer. You can also replace the vinegar with fresh lemon juice, they serve as a preservative
