How to cut fresh corn from the cob
- Once the corn is cooked and cooled enough to handle, here is how you can easily cut the corn away from the cob and not make a huge mess.
- Get two bowls, one small and one pretty large. Flip the small bowl upside down and place it in the center of the large bowl.
- Hold the ear of corn firmly on the upside down small bowl. Cut down the length of the cob in sawing motion, going around the entire ear of corn. All the kernels will fall into the large bowl, leaving you with NO MESS to clean up after.
