With sweet corn in season, I’ve been buying several ears almost every time I’m at the produce market. As I was scraping kernels off the cob earlier today, I decided to show you my favorite way to easily remove them. (I have three different recipes with corn coming up in the next week or two. I love fresh corn!)
I used to scrape the kernels off the cob onto a cutting board; just dealing with the kernels that sprayed across the counter and the ones that inevitably wound up on the floor. A few years ago, a friend told me that she scrapes her corn into a bundt pan. Just stick the end of the cob in the center of the bundt pan and scrape away. It works great!
After following that method for a long time, I switched to this one and I love it even more. I don’t have an extra pan to wash in the end, because I typically use the mixing bowl for the rest of the recipe. Simply turn a small bowl upside down inside a large mixing bowl and balance the corn on the upside down bowl. Scrape the kernels directly into the mixing bowl. Easy as can be!
