How to Remove Corn on the Cob Kernels

Get an easy tip for how to safely remove corn kernels from an ear of corn.

Stand an ear on its stem end and slice the kernels off with a sharp knife. To extract the corn “milk” and get more flavor for sauces, soups or puddings, add another step to the process: After cutting the kernels off, press the dull side of the knife down the length of the ear to push out the rest of the corn and its milk.

Yield: You’ll get about 1 cup fresh kernels from one large ear of corn.
