Tip # 2 Removing Corn from the Cob

     Not all of us enjoy eating corn on the cob.  Although it is one of my favorite sides to prepare for my family, there was a time that I lived with my parents and I had to accommodate my father since he refused to eat corn on the cob.  Whether it was from pain with his gums or being cautious with his teeth, I would have to remove the kernels from the cob.  I have noticed many kids requesting this as well in restaurants and at friends houses.  It is a fairly simple task and when you find a set up that works like a charm it makes things go a bit more smoother.  This is a fairly easy and straight to the point tip on stripping your corn on the cob.

Tip # 2  Removing Corn from the Cob

     Using a bundt pan place a dish towel around the center hole of the pan to protect it.  Place your corn upright with the tip of the cob in the center hole of the bundt pan.  Be sure to hold the cob steady and using a sharp knife make long downward strokes in order to separate the kernels from the cob.  Using the dish towel to protect the stick free interior from any damage in case you slip while removing the kernels.

     Now that the old fashioned method is out of the way, here is another way to  remove the kernels from the cob with one easy tool and no risk to any bundt pans.  Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper makes things easy and it is very similar to our already used vegetable and fruit peeler you may already have in your kitchen.  This is a very inexpensive addition and makes perfect sense to have if you and your family love fresh corn.
