Really stupid sweet corn question(answer needed asap)

My whole family is tired of corn on the cob, and want to eat it as, well, corn off the cob. Is it easier to cook it on the cob, then cut it off the cob or cut it off the cob, then cook it? (I need to start it in about an hour, hence the rush...)

I just can't figure out if it makes a difference...

TIA!
Terri

I think both would be o.k., but I would cut it after I cooked it. It's pretty easy to cut off the cob.

Can I come over for dinner?

Yes, you may, didn't you know that was the prize for being the first to answer?

I'm having twelve people over for "pre-Thanksgiving" turkey dinner: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet corn, rolls, etc, etc....

So I could use the extra pair of hands!

Thanks!

We always cut it off the cob before cooking. Once it is cooking the kernals or more 'mushy' plus you have to wait til it cools off to handle.

Ok, now I've got one opinion each way, I'm in trouble. Thanks to you both, though!

I almost always cut it off the cob after it's cooked. Just give everyone a knife (children can have an adult help) and let them cut it off the cob themselves.

It is quick and easy to do prior to cooking.

Here's how.

I'd do before - its not hot that way - no burning of the hands! Super easy to do. Heck I eat corn on the cob without cooking it too

It tastes good raw too!

Cut then freeze. Do not cook first. It holds up in the freezer just fine!

I serve my corn on the cob a little differently.

I first take an ear of corn and hollow out the interior (use a very sharp scooping device), until nothing is left but the kernals.

I then stick the hollowed-out ear of corn in water and cook. Since it is hollow, the kernals are cooked on both sides. Cooking time is about 45 seconds.

When you serve it, your guest will have on their plate a perfectly formed, yet hollow, ear of corn. As soon as he or she sticks a fork into it, the kernals will all fall apart into a nice, elongated heap.

Or, you may want to insert a stick of butter into the hollow area, hence buttering the corn from the inside.

Try it!

Ok, I would LOVE to try this....but I can't wrap my head around the scooping out the inside of the cob, can you elaborate a bit? I've got a bunch of excellent corn I need to use......

Ahh, joke, well that shows you what a CB newb I am...LOL Thanks for info on that, I'm sure it will come in handy. I could not figure out what in the world someone would use to carve out the inside of a corn cob....but apparently I was willing to give it a try! LOL
