“I have been gathering some basics on cooking, some tips that save time and the hassle or are just good for the beginning cook to know. (or me too! LOL) Please check out my Basics cookbook for other great tips gathered from near and far. This one makes it easy to cut the fresh corn from the cob for other recipes. And it freezes well too! I am putting an amount in the ingredients because Zaar is asking me to, but use however many you want. I also had to add another ingredient for this to post, but water is not used in this procedure. Sorry for any confusion.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -8 fresh corn on the cob
  • water


  1. Cutting the kernels from long ears of corn can be tricky. That task is easier and safer by cutting the ear in half and standing the half ears on their cut surfaces, which are flat and stable. Not only is the corn more stable on the work surface, it is also easier to control the knife down the length of only half an ear. Use right away or freeze for later use.
