best way to shuck, clean corn on the cob

Discussion in 'Veggies' started by coaldust, Jun 8, 2013.

  1. Watched a video yesterday on how to get corn with no hassel, ending up with no shuck or silk.

    Microwave 2 ears for 8 minutes (in the shuck), remove hot corn from microwave place on cutting board and cut

    end of cob, being sure to cut just into corn kernel end then grab top holding shuck and silk and shake the clean ear out,

    It works every time for me!!

    Would load the video if I was smarted than a 5th grader.

  4. Recently started doing my corn in the oven and it's been excellent. 350 for 30 minutes in the husks directly on the rack. Cut just as described above and they come out clean. Something about cooking them in the husk makes them taste so much better. I've always boiled them and have been missing out.

    I have been soaking mine corn on the cob...all of it..husks silks and everything....in the sink for about 30-45 minutes.  Then when I am "grilling" on the Weber....pop them on there while the meat is cooking.  Take them off....stand over the garbage can...and pull the husks and silks right off...easy peasy!  Easiest way I have done them yet.

    I'm confused on the explanation for cutting the husk off... you cut the whole end of the cob off (the butt end) ?

    maybe just tell us the name of the video if you can't figure out how to embed it ... or copy and paste the link...

    I have done two different videos.

    You can go to you tube and watch the videos of the "how to's".

  9. Hey Keith, After cooking cut the butt end off getting just a little of the kernels with it, grab it by the top and shake it and the corn falls out the bottom clean of silk and shuck.

    Your technique does work Kat, problem is, I sometimes scratch myself when eating sweet corn, I need the handle.  [​IMG]
