Shucking corn can sometimes be a boring task if you don’t know the right methods. Some people gently peel back one layer of husk at a time and it’s a really impractical way to shuck corn.
We would like to give you one proved method in order to relieve you from doubts about how to shuck corn in a right way.
Start with fresh ears
First, you should look for ears of corn with firm, fresh husks that are tightly attached to the corn and shuck them first.
Check the kernels
If possible, you should see if the kernels look bright, smooth and plump.
Separate the husks at the top
You need to go to the top of the ear, and then you need to separate the silk in half and
Pull husks down
In order to reveal the cob, pull the hunk of husks all the way down. Starting back at the top where the silk tassels are, pull down another section of husks.
Rip off husks
Once all the husks are pulled back to reveal the ear of corn kernels underneath, just rip off the husks from the cob.
Remove any silk
There may be some strands of silk on the kernels and you don’t want to eat them so just remove them.
Now you are ready to use your shucked corn
After you followed these steps, the only remaining step is to use the corn in whichever way you want.
