Shucking corn


Not a recipe, but food related. Just finished peeling, cooking, shucking and freezing over four dozen ears of corn - we got hit with a short, but violent, storm yesterday and half my corn plants got knocked over, several of them terminally so. Luckily, it was ready to pick... unfortunately we ended up with five dozen or so ears that my hubby and I weren't hungry enough to eat at one sitting - we gave away a bunch, and then after supper I started processing it to use this winter.

I grow corn because I LOVE corn on the cob, but frozen has it uses too - it's a lot of work to get the corn off the cobs, so my stash is used exclusively on corn puddings and corn chowder over the winter.

I used one of those metal corn shuckers for the first time - when I did this last year, it took me about two hours to shuck a couple dozen ears using just a knife - with my new gadget I got four dozen done in less than an hour! Very nice little machine, it was $5 well spent!

Re: Shucking corn


Mrs. PF - this cornshucker would be a great little addition to my Xmas package for Grammie. Can you tell me which brand you got? I'm going to try and find it.

Re: Shucking corn


I'm sorry, I meant to get back to you on this sooner... my corn shucker was a cheapo version from Bradley's - I think it cost about 5 bucks. There's no name brand or any other commercial info on it, it just has these long yellow handles connecting in a "U" shape around this evil looking circle of metal teeth. I tried to find one via google, but couldn't - I DID find some fancier versions that you might want to consider instead, though, or you might want to check in your own local hardware store. Good luck!

Skokey, you're a genious! Thank you! That looks almost like mine, except the handles on mine are coated with a thin layer of yellow rubber.

I would never have believed that was used to shuck corn.

Re: Shucking corn


Hand work is far better than those tools.
Honest...
What do those tools do for the stringies left behind?
