dehusk sweet corn
I didn’t believe it myself at first. I saw pictures online, read the instructions and thought yeah right, you can’t dehusk sweet corn like that and have it work.
Until I went and canned corn and had a ton of ears to dehusk. Then I was willing to give it a try. Two boxes of corn worth. 18 jars pints of corn. Who has time to dehusk them one by one and hope the silk comes off. Not me.
What you’ll need:
Knife (big chef type knife)
Place 2 ears of corn into the microwave at a time.
Microwave for 6 minutes at 1200 power (adjust for your microwave power, maybe more)
With an oven mitt, remove from the microwave and place on the cutting board.
With your chef knife (good heavy knife), cut off the end that connects to the corn stalk.
Take your mitt and place it on the tassel end and squeeze the cob out of the leaves. Once you get a little bit out, you can take the knife and use it as a little leveraged as you push the corn out. (stab the corn and hold it down while pulling the corn stalk)
The corn will come out and have little to no silk on it.
It will be cooked and ready to eat.
No more making a mess. Did you know you could dehusk corn this way?
