How to Cut Corn From the Cob
Remove the husks and silks from the corn cobs and rinse well. Slice off a bit of the tip end to create a flat top. Stand the corn in a wide bowl or pie plate on the flat end. With a y-peeler, sharp knife, or special corn cutting tool, cut the kernels from the cob. Cut about 3/4 of the way through the kernels, cutting a few rows at a time. After the corn has been cut, scrape the back of a knife over the rows to get any milky juices left on the cobs.
