Summer is here which means corn on the cob will be on our dinner table a lot the next few weeks.  We love fresh corn picked from our garden or purchased at the farmers market.  But shucking the corn takes time and my kids hate to do it.  Getting all the corn silk off can be time consuming as well.

YES in just 3 easy steps you can have  cooked corn on the cob ready to eat.

FIRST step ~ take a sharp knife and chop the end of the cob off.  You want to cut just above the first row of kernels.  Don’t cut the end that has silk coming out  you want to cut the bottom end. Make sure it is above the first row of corn or it will not work.How to shuck and cook corn on the cob quickly, in 3 simple steps.

No corn silk will be left, it comes out clean   #Corn, #HowToShuckCornQuickly, #CornOnTheCobThird Step ~ pick up the corn with a towel or dish cloth.  Watch out the corn will be HOT.  Hold the top of the corn (part with the silk) firmly with the towel ans squeeze downward.  Give it a little shake, as you squeeze the husk the corn will slide right out of the husk and all the silk will stay in the husk.  You are left with a perfectly cooked cob of corn, ready to cover with butter and eat :).

I assume the same concept would work if you boiled or grilled the corn, but I have not tried it.  This method is perfect for grabbing a quick bite to eat without heating up your kitchen. Cooked and on the plate ready to eat in 3 minutes, such an awesome trick!!!

 Fall Corn Craft~ Easy Thanksgiving Snacks

Here is a fun craft to make for the kids to celebrate Thanksgiving!  Who doesn’t love an excuse to eat Reese’s Pieces?!

You will need

  • Reese’s Pieces candy
  • Snack size Ziploc bags
  • Brown paper lunch bags
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Begin by filling your snack bags with Reese’s Pieces.  When they are full, tape the “closure down to the bottom of the bag.  For the top of your ear of corn, you will want to tape the closure at an angle to prevent it from showing.  If it isn’t completely smooth underneath, that is okay, it won’t show other then the very top.

Grab one brown paper lunch bag.  Open it up and cut down the side seams to cut in half.  Cut off the bottom.

You should end up with two equal pieces.  At the top of each of these cut 3 lines about 2-3 inches down.  Now you are going to want to take each of those 3 sections and give them a slightly pointy look.  Just trim the sides of them so they resemble a corn husk, not so much a brown paper bag.

Take your baggie of Reese’s pieces and place them in the center.  Make sure your corn husks are a little taller then your baggie, but not a huge difference.  Bunch up the brown paper bag at the base of your snack bag and secure together with a piece of twine or ribbon when you have it positioned the way you want. You should have quite a bit of brown bag hanging over the bottom, that is okay.  We are going to trim it off once your bags are tied together.
