Transcript:How to Cut Corn off the CobHi, I am Ben Kurtzman for About.com Food and today I am gong to show you how to make corn off the cob.
Corn on the cob is a great summer treat, but it is not so much fun for someone with dentures, or maybe a loose tooth or braces. What I am going to show you allows everyone to enjoy that great, fresh corn flavor.
Prepare the CornCorn off the cob starts the same as corn on the cob: peel the husks and boil the ears for about five minutes. After the corn is cooked through, put it aside until it is cool enough to handle.
Cutting Corn Off the CobWe are going to take a sharp knife and cut the corn right off the ear. Stand the ear up on its end with the wider end on the bottom, and cut straight down. When you are cutting, you want to get as close to the center as possible so that you get as much of the ear as you can. That is where the most flavorful part of the kernel is.
You can use this method to make sure everyone in your life gets fresh, delicious corn in the summertime, and it is also a great way to prepare corn for freezing or soups, as well.
