    Corn isn’t a vegetable… It’s a grain.

    That was painful to watch...never realized how intimidating unshucked corn could be to even somewhat interested chefs!!
    I probably ate about 500 cobs by the time I was 12, and shucked 20 times that many. Maybe in less time it took some of these folks? Although I never trimmed the kernels off the cob, except with my own teeth.

    Chef didn't say a word about removing the silks effectively. I just use a veggie brush and brush the majority of the silks off by brushing the rows from top to bottom over the garbage can. You generally won't get all of them but a few stray silks never hurt nobody.

    Myth: Your body cannot digest corn -- and that's a bad thing.
    While it's true that corn has high amounts of insoluble fiber -- meaning, the kind of fiber that goes through the body intact and gets those bowel movements going -- this is not a bad thing, McDaniel says. Sure, if you eat a lot of corn, you might see some of it in your stool, but insoluble fiber has been shown in research to help feed the "good" bacteria in our gut. "If we're looking at getting lots of good fiber in our diet, it's good that [corn] has a higher ratio of insoluble to soluble fiber because it feeds the good gut bacteria in our body," she explains.

    Interesting fact Cornhusker Lotion was made because of contact dermatitis from the hairs. Mind you this will only happen if you are shucking tons of corn. I had this once when my friends family had a HUGE BBQ and my friend, her mom and I shucked at least 60 cobs of corn.

    I just use my palms to grip onto a column (vertical) of corns
    and break them off
    That way you dont get half cut corns
    but the only problem is that you have to remove a few columns another way before you can get a good grip
