Well with summer on the way, here is another healthy item that most just throw in the garbage. For most parts, folks just eat the corn, but through my eyes the corn silk is even better for you, especially for anyone with a bladder, kidney, prostate, yeast, kidney stones or urinary problem. Yep Good Old Corn Silk and so easy to come by this time of year too. You can even dry some and make a tea out of it, cut it up and sprinkle it over a salad. I do both, but I also enjoy chewing on it when it’s real tender, better than any gum out there. Also dry some on the counter and put in paper bag for winter, never know when a health problem might arise. But don’t wait for a problem to arise, have a cup or two once a week, preventative maintenance is the best way to go.
Corn Silk Tea
2 cups of boiling water
2 tablespoons fresh or dried corn silk
Sweeten to taste, that’s all there is to it. Enjoy the summer!
