Corn is one of my favorite foods but sometimes I don't want to chow down on a cob. For one, it always gets stuck in my teeth. It's also pretty messy. Ever been sprayed by someone sitting next to you eating a cob? Not fun. But for more practical reasons, there are times when I want to incorporate corn kernels into a recipe or freeze them to enjoy later on.
The problem - determining the best way to handle the job. I've attempted many different methods with varying degrees of success. And often, a portion of corn ends up all over the counter and on the floor.
The best method that I've tried involves inverting a small bowl inside of a larger bowl. Then I stand my shucked cob on top of the small bowl. I slice down with a knife to remove the kernels and it all goes right into the large bowl. It's a pretty effective approach, and I'd recommend it for small amounts. But with plans of buying a bushel of corn in the near future for de-kerneling and freezing, I'm wondering if it's really the most efficient process. I've heard about these kinds of devices as well using a bundt cake pan, but have yet to try either.
