What do a Bundt pan and a cob of corn have in common? They actually go together like peanut butter and jelly. Milk and cookies. Bacon and eggs.

How many times have you found yourself holding a slippery, buttery ear of corn trying to cut the kernels off? Not only is it messy, but a knife and buttery corn can be quite the dangerous situation. So the next time you find yourself needing to cut the kernels off your corn on the cob, rummage through your cabinets and pull out your Bundt pan!

You can use your Bundt pan to help you remove the corn kernels quite easily. Here’s how:

Shuck the corn first and peel off the silk. Wedge the naked ear of corn on the opening in the center of a Bundt pan (heavier works better). Slide the knife down the ear and all the kernels will collect in the main part of the pan. No more messy hands, no more danger, no more corn kernels all over the place. It is a win-win.

Now head out to your local farmer’s market or vegetable stand and stock up, because you will want fresh corn tonight!
