Here’s how to cut corn off the cob…the mess-free way! This simple trick makes it easy to use the kernels for salads and soups.
- Corn cobs
- Bundt pan or tube pan (or rimmed baking sheet or dish, with a folded towel under it)
- Large chef’s knife
- Place the tip of the corn cob into the hole in the middle of the pan. Hold the bottom of the corn cob securely with your non-cutting hand. (If using a baking sheet or dish, place a folded towel underneath to prevent slippage. Hold the corn vertically and rest the bottom right on the sheet.)
- Use a large chef’s knife to cut in a downward motion, letting the corn cobs kernels collect neatly into the pan.
