How should you eat a corn cob?

This is a pretty important and complicated issue, so don't be surprised if it gets moved to P&R.

Btw, some of you may be surprised to know I sometimes drive a joke into the ground. Especially if your name is Jsharr.

That's the guy who goes bass fishing. For delicious Bass.

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.

actually I do each end first so I have more cornless cob handles...then make like a typewriter.

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.

It's simple really. Feed it to a pig and enjoy the bacon.

All that matters is young fresh corn and plenty of butter.

Dishes are a fine way to get plenty of butter.

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.

Two ways to eat corn on the cob... The typewriter method or the lathe method.

i used to eat it with butter salt and pepper. Now I just use hot sauce.

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.

Corn and coffee, only two things a microwave is good for.

Soak the corn while it is in it's husk, making sure the corn comes from Taber... cook it over an open fire or on the grill.

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.

Little word of warning here... that corn silk will foul up your sink drain faster than almost anything except coffee grounds... Shuck it over a trash can first.
