Wrong season, but a cool trick

My Louisiana sister sent another useful video. This is at least as cool as peeling a whole head of garlic in less than ten seconds (in a previous post), and it doesn't require matching large bowls.

Let's hope I remember this when the fresh corn comes back around in June!


  1. The problem with this is that microwaving kills the majority of the nutrients.

  2. Looks interesting, especially if you are only cooking one ear. But takes a while to do 4 ears.

  3. Well, this obviously isn't for everyone, but I still want to try it. Watching that ear slide out of the husks silk-free is pretty cool.

    I usually steam our corn, so I am wondering whether the slice-off-the-blunt-end-then-grab-the-pointy-end-and-shake routine will work on steamed corn, too. It is probably worth some evenings of experimentation, to find out.
