Corn on the Cob; Medicinally
The silky tassels covering the cobs, can be made into an infusion which soothes the urinary passages and acts as a diuretic. This can be very beneficial in cases of kidney stones and cystitis - but to be effective several cups of the infusion should be drunk each day. See 'Corn'; ' Sweet Corn'; And 'Sweet Corn Relish' in our Recipe Section
