How to Remove Corn Kernels
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.
