Works for me Wednesday-Cutting Corn off the Cob

October 22, 2008 at 12:42 pm 6 comments

I think this is a tip from Martha Stewart. At first I thought it was pretty gimmicky, but it truly works well!

Use a bundt pan, and put one end of the cob in the hole. The kernels fall right into the pan, and not on the floor!

I was using this corn to make corn chowder. It wasn’t that great since its past its season.

My second tip is when you make corn during its prime, make a couple extra pieces. Cut the kernels off and freeze them. I keep a big container in the freezer and add to it every time we have corn. It makes for much better corn chowder in the fall.

Of course I didn’t do that this summer, because Oliver loves corn and ate all the extras!

    That is an incredibly good idea. Does this mean I’ll have to buy a bundt pan and then learn how to bake with it? lol

    My husband loves corn and so the same would happen at our house

    Come by my place today to see how you can Cruise through the Holidays, in my WFMW.
    Have a Great Day!

    I totally thought I made this up myself. This is how I do it too. I think Martha ripped me off.
