I had previously posted a video on different food hacks. I seemed to remember there was one for shucking fresh corn on the cobb. I Googled it and found this one. I am going to try it tonight!

Interesting trick. I will try it tonight on a single cob, just to see how it works.

Here's a YouTube video of the hack too. I also liked the tip to take the kernels off the cob.

I haven't watched the video yet, but isn't that what teeth are for?

Not sure I'd want to serve a corn chowder that I've made with corn I took off the cob with my teeth.

You did notice that in all the videos they’re using oven mitts, hot pads, or towels, right?

I dunno. I like to wash my corn before I cook it. Just in case there are any critters inside.
