The Trick to Cutting Corn Off the Cob Without Making a Mess


Ta da!  I'd seen several other bloggers recommend this trick, but I hadn't tried it myself until today.  It works like a dream. So much better than doing it on a cutting board which sprays corn juice and corn bits all over.  I might go so far as to say it is the best way to cut corn off the ear. 

All you need is a bunt pan or angel food cake pan.  Stick the top of the ear into the hole and it will stand up nicely on its own and the pan will catch *almost* all of the corn kernels as you cut them off.  Love it.  

This kitchen hint will work for all sort of things like:


Blue Ribbon Corn Relish
Freezing Sweet Corn and Creamed Corn
Sweet Corn Chowder

Have you tried this trick for cutting corn off the ear?

  2. Although a good idea agreed, I still like eating corn on the cob the old fashioned and messy way.

  3. woah.
    that's a good idea.
    i usually eat straight off, or cut off a raw cob for salads.... and don't make TOO much of a mess when cutting on a board.
    great idea, though!

  4. I totally saw your post the day AFTER I did a whole bunch of corn by just sitting it up on a cutting board to cut it off with corn flying everywhere! I guess next time I'll have to do it this way, brilliant idea- thanks for sharing :)
