I have been using my angel food cake pan for years to do this. It really does work. I place it on a cookie sheet to catch all the wayward kernels of corn that try to escape.. Great when doing corn for the freezer... Keep up the good work, Jamie! Say "hey" to your mom for me and all of her supporters...

TO MAKE THIS EVEN EASIER, TRY USING AN ELECTRIC KNIFE. IT WORKS SLICK!

Jamie my Mother taught me to go a bit further after you finish cutting the corn off the cob. Next you take a serrated knife and the start at an end and run the knife down the cob (the same way you did to get the corn off the cob)and then you get the "milk" from the corn. It makes a huge difference especially if you are going to be making creamed corn. It just seems to make such a huge difference. Love your idea for using the bundt pan to hold the cob. OUTSTANDING YOUNG MAN {LOL} ;-} Hugs and Loves, Trish Skidmore <><

He is absolutely right. I have been doing this for years. The paper towel is also how I remove the silk from the corn. Love watching the "Paula Deen Show".

I can give you a quick way to cook corn. leave husk & silk on ear of corn & put ear in micro-wave 4 minutes per ear. Take out with hot pad or glove. lay down & cut 1/2 inch off of bottom of ear. Pick it up by the top of husk & shake up & down & ear will come out of husk & leave the silk right in the husk so your ear of corn is cooked, husked, silked & ready for butter to eat. enjoy. sure wish you would have a drawing & give away for your mixer sometime. I break more mixers doing dough.

If you want creamed corn yoou must do two steps before cooking. 1) with a sharp knife just "skim" the top of the kernel, in other words cut off corn like the video instructs but only cut about 1/3 of the corn kernel off. 2)Now go back and scrape out the milk of the corn. This is the starchy inside of corn which will give you the creamy corn. Add water to the corn. Not too much and you can add salt if you wish(does not toughen corn)and butter. Be sure yur corn does stick to pan. If you added too much water remove top from skillet and let it cook off. If not creaming enough, you can add corn starch to small amount of cold water and add to hot corn stirring. Note:Field corn is not as sweet as the Silver Queen and it is starchier. Both great!

I wish my mother was alive to see that vodeo on peeling the corn she would be smiling from ear to ear . Being a farmer we bottle lots of vegetable.
