Much as I might love to sink my teeth into a tender cob of corn, I like it even better sheared from the cob and made into a summer salad. But the process of stripping corn from cobs often results in a colossal mess. Never again. Here’s a tip for how to cut corn off the cob I picked up from Cooking Light that keeps your mess to a minimum.

How to cut corn off the cob / Mom's Kitchen Handbook 1. Get out a Bundt or angel food cake pan.

2. Invert the tip of a shucked ear of corn into the center of the pan.

3. Hold the ear firmly at the top, and run a knife down the side to shear off the kernels. I prefer a serrated edge knife for this.

4. Work your way around the cob, allowing the cake pan to collect the kernels as they drop.
