How to Cut Corn Off the Cob

Simple Tip: Slice Corn Off the Cob in a Bowl

While fresh corn is absolutely delicious right off the cob, when it's in season I like to use corn in everything from salads to pizza toppings. It's easy to remove corn from the cob, but sometimes the kernels end up flying all over the place. To prevent a mess, place the corn in a bowl when cutting the kernels off. The bowl catches any kernels, and you've got all the corn in one place.

Do you have a tip for enjoying fresh corn? Please share with us below!

we used to buy the last corn of the season and cut it off the cob to freeze it so we had delicious corn all winter long. it was much better than the stuff in the can.

Oooooh I like that idea Beth! I know OXO makes a good corn scraper, Americas Test Kitchen did a review on corn scrapers and it was their top pick. I typically eat my corn on the cob, but when I make a corn salad with red onions and fresh basil leaves (which, btw, is amaaaaaaaazing :drool: ) I always wonder how to make the scraping process easier.

Rachel Ray's tip is to invert a smaller bowl in the bigger one so it's easier to cut off the kernels. That way it still stays in the bigger bowl but you have better leverage cutting off the cob.

Rub some butter on the cob, put a sprig of rosemary on it (I have a big bush of it), wrap it in aluminum foil, and on to the grill it goes.

Corn on the cob with melted buttah and smoked sea salt. Simple bliss. For the actual cobs, I save old wine bottle corks to skewer the holders between uses. It makes for a finger-friendly forage into the utensil drawer!
