This is a pretty important and complicated issue, so don't be surprised if it gets moved to P&R.
start at one end, go all the way around, then move towards the opposite end, l-r.
As with Option 1, but moving r-l
Start at left but go all the way across to the right, then move down a row and start over at left.
As with option 3, but start at right and move left, then back to right.
as with #4 but move down at farthest left and then reverse direction for the next row.
as with #5, only move UP to begin next row
Who cares, so long as there's kern!
I can't believe it's not butter.
Got any toothpicks?
Cob, schmob. Gimme corn in the can, mister.
I don't eat the cob, just the corn.
But when I eat corn on the cob, I usually "typewriter" it... then go back and get the missed corns. I love it BBQed with butter and some dashes of hot sauce such as Mexi-pep.
left to right all the way across. rotate down and repeat left to right. it is CRUCIAL to have a plastic tray that looks like corn on the cob in which to place butter to rotate the corn in and it is equally inportant to have little skewers that look like corn cobs to stab into each end of the ear of corn to facilitate said rotating in butter, etc.
Yes, my mother still has them. I loved them. We have some different screw in things for the ends now, but no trays now. I hope mom leaves me the corn trays in her will. I assure you, once you have experienced corn on the cob rotated in butter in the miracle of the corn shaped tray held by the genius of the corn shaped skewer, you will never be able to enjoy corn on the cob again any other way. Okay, you will enjoy, but your joy will be decreased, possibly not even to a noticable degree, but it will be decreased, you may take my word on that, or my name is not Katie Couric.
i put it in microwave and after i quit hearing the popping i remove and eat
First, I stop at the cob.
But back to the original question, put the corn, husk and all in the microwave, 1 1/2-2 mins per ear in the microwave. Shuck it under under the sink faucet, add butter and salt and pepper. Best corn ever.
Typewriter. Mmmm, memories of grandaddy's corn.
AllenG's got the cook method down.
I, I knife-off two or so cobs-worth and mack.
You hold the corn on the cob by the husk that it was roasted in. Slather on the butter, sour cream, red chili powder and squeeze a lime ontop. In spite of you holding it by the husks like a civilized person, it's still gonna be messy but sometimes the best things in life ain't always the prettiest.
Two is one and one is none.
I'm the one who uses a sharp knife to slice the kernels off the cob, then I eat it with butter and a little pepper using chopstix.
Some super sweets I'll eat raw the day it's picked. But whatever variety, if cooking, either grilled or quick steamed.
All I know is I eat bananas like they were corn. Yes, I have a complex..
