Corn on the cob: It’s just not ladylike. You are forced to eat with your fingers, gnaw at your food, and then inevitably, you end up with remnants stuck between your teeth. That, friends, is why I prefer my corn OFF the cob.
This is a task easier said than done. You’ll find that if you prop your corn on the cutting board prior to shearing, the kernels go all over the place. So what’s a girl to do?
Get out your bundt pan! [I won’t take credit for inventing this trick, but I’ve been using it so long I don’t pretend to remember its source.] Balance your corn in the center of the pan, shear off the kernels and let them collect in the bundt pan. Mess: eliminated.
